Formula 1 is becoming more popular in Mexico, so they will build a racetrack in the Riviera Maya, the main tourist area of Cancun, Quintana Roo. What will happen to the CDMX GP?
The circuit will be part of Puerto Aventuras, one of the most ambitious projects in recent years, located in the municipality of Solidaridad.
The place is 500 hectares, will have capacity for 30 thousand spectators and the track will be 9 kilometers long, which will be modified according to the needs of each competition.
The idea is to make a complex, with five-star hotels, each with 120 rooms. There will also be a golf course and a racetrack.
There are several projects underway in that state, including the Tulum Airport and the Mayan Train.
Construction will begin in 2022 and is expected to finish in 2025. The investment will be 3.7 billion pesos.
According to Mario Esteban González, who runs the Cancun Construction Group, this racetrack will be better than those of Yas Marina (Abu Dhabi – United Arab Emirates) and Losail International (Doha – Qatar).
F1: What will happen to the CDMX GP?
The Formula 1 contract with the CDMX GP will end in 2022, although in 2023 there will be another race, since the one that was canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic was run.
Negotiations to renew the agreement have not yet begun; however, the event directors are confident that they can do so.
In 2021, Checo Pérez became the first driver from our country to get on the podium at the Hermano Rodríguez Autodrome. This race was a success, since it left an economic spill of more than 14 billion pesos.
