Termas de Río Hondo autodrome fire“Unfortunately, the entire pit building was destroyed. This sector also included the press room, the race control and the VIP lounges. Both the museum and the control tower, which are located at the ends, were not seriously damaged "he related Hector Farina, general director of the racetrack.

"We have full insurance against fire so the issue of economic damage is covered, but it will surely take a long time to rebuild that important area necessary for national and international competitions", added the former pilot, who thanked God that there were no victims to mourn.

"We will work from now on to try to meet the schedules we have planned, including the MotoGP Grand Prix in November", concluded.

Likewise, Farina announced that the museum, one of the main tourist attractions of Termas de Río Hondo, "It will be reopened to the public in the next few days."
