Kuwait building $162m Motor Town

KUWAIT, August 3, 2016

Kuwait is building a world-class Motor Town which will feature seven racing circuits that would enable the country to host Formula One and MotoGP races in the future, according to a report.

Under a KD49-million ($162.27 million) contract awarded by the Amiri Diwan, local developer Bayan National Trading Company will design and build the Motor Town south of Kuwait City, in Orafjan, adjacent to Wafra Road, according to a Kuwait News Agency (Kuna) report.

The contract includes the construction of a pit building and a media centre.  A hotel and a shopping mall are expected to be built in the next phase of development.

Motor Town has been designed by Germany’s Tilke, which holds credit for a number of popular F1 tracks including Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

According to Tilke, Motor Town will position itself as a new destination with a unique FIA Grade One circuit as the nucleus of the state-of-the-art facility with a fully integrated portfolio of entertainment assets that will attract a wide spectrum of people.  - TradeArabia News Service
