Cabildo reiterates commitment to International Motor Park 

Tenerife Cabildo has approved a contract of 899,480 euros in favour of the public company Gestur Tenerife S.A. for the provision of certain services with the aim of launching the International Motor Park of Tenerife.

The commission includes the surveying and drafting of the execution projects of the north and south accesses and of the auxiliary buildings (race direction, closed park, technical verification, garage, medical centre, boxes modules 1, 2, 3 and 4, commercial building services and garage).

Councillor for area Tenerife 2030, Antonio García Marichal and the Minister of Sports, Cristo Pérez, held a meeting with representatives of the Insular Federations of Motoring and Canary Islands of Motorcycling and the collective ‘We want a speed circuit in Tenerife ‘to publicise this initiative that was approved at the last session of the Governing Council.

The Insular Corporation has updated the design of the International Motor Park of Tenerife with the aim of adjusting the current regulations of the International Automobile Federation (FIA) and the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM) and guaranteeing the highest level of homologation that both organisations demand.

Last October, the Cabildo commissioned a technical engineering company specialising in circuits to verify and comply with the motor circuit with the current sports regulations in order to guarantee the technical and sporting viability of the project. These specialists advised to make some small adjustments that are essential to obtain the highest level of homologation currently required by the FIA and the FIM.

The Cabildo reiterates its commitment to build the International Motor Park of Tenerife, so it has planned an investment of around five million euros in this year’s budgets. This will not only meet a historical demand of the motor sector of the island but will bring economic develop-ment and employment to the island of Tenerife.
