JAKARTADAILY.ID - Vice President Communication Organizing Comite Formula E Jakarta Iman Syafei explained from a circuit capacity perspective, Jakarta International E-Prix Circuit or JIEC is unlike Mandalika MotoGP Circuit.
But Iman said his team will keep trying to accommodate the maximum number of spectators of Formula E Jakarta. He said the Jakarta Formula E audience is projected to reach above 10,000 but less than 50,000.
“Because their requirements are actually quite strict, this circuit is actually unlike Mandalika’s nor Sentul’s,” he said to reporters, Monday, March 28, 2022.
To this day, Iman said the organizer keeps consulting with Formula E Operations (FEO) to add or subtract the number of audiences because they have really strict regulations.
“We are trying to get as many audiences as possible, so to this day, we are still trying to find another location to add in,” he said.
Separately, Jakarta Regional House of Representatives of the Gerindra fraction Syarif considered it reasonable for Formula E's audience capacity to not exceed 50,000.
According to Syarif, the number of spectators will also be directly proportional to the capacity of the Jakarta Formula E circuit in Ancol.
“It is true, it will not reach 50 thousand. We will see where it makes sense in such an area," he said.
Not only that, Syarif said, the capacity of the audience will also affect the income for the organizers. Even so, Jakarta Provincial Government will keep receiving the domino effect of the Formula E event later in June 2022.
