Minister Grima Inspects Progress at Future Centru Nazzjonali tal-Motorsport Site in Hal-Far

Minister Clifton Grima recently paid a visit to the site of the upcoming Centru Nazzjonali tal-Motorsport in Hal Far. The minister’s inspection comes amidst fervent efforts to transform the area into a state-of-the-art racing circuit, set to redefine the island’s motorsport landscape.

A major aspect of the visit was the cleanup operation orchestrated by Clean Malta, aimed at clearing the site of decades-old illegal dumping. According to Ramon Deguara, who oversees the cleanup, an impressive 959 truckloads of waste have already been removed, including hazardous materials like oil and asbestos. This cleanup effort marks a pivotal step towards the realization of the ambitious project, with approximately 26,000 tons of debris already cleared.

However, there is still much work to be done, as Deguara pointed out the need for an additional 2000 truckloads to complete the cleanup. Despite the challenges, progress continues unabated, with an estimated seven more months required to clear the remaining material. Duncan Micallef, President of the Malta Motorsport Federation, emphasized the significance of this cleanup phase, underscoring its pivotal role in the three-year-long journey towards the construction of the racing circuit.

Speaking about the project’s complexities, Micallef highlighted the meticulous planning involved, including consultations with the International Automobile Federation (FIA). He emphasized the track’s unique features, which will encompass a karting track, a drag strip, and a circuit, making it a one-of-a-kind facility in Europe.

Minister Clifton Grima echoed Micallef’s sentiments, emphasizing the project’s potential to put Malta on the international motorsport map. With a sprawling area of 200,000 square meters dedicated to the circuit, the minister revealed that discussions with international stakeholders have already begun, with a keen interest in hosting FIA-sanctioned events.

Furthermore, Minister Grima hinted at forthcoming announcements regarding the project’s next phase, highlighting ongoing efforts with the Planning Authority to secure necessary permits. This assurance of progress was echoed by Glenn Bedingfield, emphasizing the government’s commitment to delivering on its promises.
