The Mandalika route was built on Lombok Island, a tourist resort. The first works began in October 2019 and ended in November 2021.
Mandalika is a rather particular circuit. It could be defined as a quasi-city route, since it incorporates some public roads normally used by local traffic. Therefore a considerable number of infrastructures used for the circuit are removable, in order to allow the return to normal traffic. A rather rare element in the world championship scene.
