  1. Tenerife'srace-trackgo-ahead TENERIFE'S long-promised motor-racing track has finally been given the green light … and construction work on the Atogo circuit in Granadilla begins on 29th August. Cabildo President Carlos Alonso, who last year announced that Italian company Onda Rossa had been commissioned to undertake the 30-million-euro contract, to build the track and infrastructure, said it will go ahead “imminently”. He added: “This is very important to the Island for the generation of economic activity and job creation. And it adds to the tourism industry.” News of the track has alerted several hundred tweeters, including some from the motor-sport world. Former F1 world champion Damon Hill wrote: “Hey, that looks fun.” And Mark Blundell, former F1 driver, Le Mans 24-Hour champion and TV presenter, tweeted: “Tenerife most spectacular backdrop for track I've seen.” Onda Rossa has also been awarded the administrative and management contract for the next 35 years. Alonso said the company had considerable experience in Italy, building roads, airports and car parks, and had worked on the Monza circuit. The project was already under way last year, but the actual physical work begins in earnest this month. The initial spend is 23.8m euros, of which 21.4m will go on the track and 2.4m on access points. Another 240,000 euros will be spent purchasing land just south of the track to aid access. In addition, 4.2m will be spent on equipment and another million will go towards miscellaneous matters such as a control room, security cameras, closed-circuit TV, a perimeter fence and sundry staffing. The Otogo motor complex will take up over 1.3sq/m. The circuit will be just over 4km long, with a top speed for a Formula 1 test car of around 310kph.
