This is a big event of a very extraordinary motorsport. Let me express my gratitude, especially to the people of West Nusa Tenggara and the people of Lombok who have fully supported [the event] and all stakeholders, including organizers and all workers who have worked day and night preparing this big event.

And I would like to congratulate everyone.

Congratulations.
