Spain and Motorsport have once again shown tremendous solidarity at such delicate times as we are living today. According to the Spanish Federation, all the circuits that host national and international races in Spain have given up both their facilities and the medical equipment they have available to join the fight against this health crisis. These are the following:
The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, wich hosts the most important competitions in Spain, Moto GP and Formula 1, among many others, has ceded its respirators to the General Hospital of Granollers. These are being used to care for critically ill patients.
In the case of Navarra Circuit, in Los Arcos, its medical centre has been integrated into the Navarran health system as a reinforcement for the population of the area affected by the COVID-19. It has been operational 24 hours, with two ambulances carrying out transfers of people.
Motorland Aragón, a circuit located in the town of Alcañiz, has donated its masks and personal protective equipment to the hospital of Alcañiz. The clinic of its facilities is also available for use as a hospital.
The tracks of Valencia, Jarama and Jerez have also yielded to their respective health services, respirators and sanitary equipment to fully join this battle. We have also been able to see in recent days how R-cars and health workers who regularly operate in car tests were used extensively and tirelessly. They are working with medical services in different parts of our country to help people affected by this health crisis.
Another great example of collaboration is found at the Motor&sport Institute, with Teo Martín. They are producing protective sanitary materials there, while providing the necessary information so that everyone with a 3D printer can collaborate in a particular way.
In addition to all these cases, many drivers and teams are donating sanitary equipment, through their companies, to try to stop this dramatic situation. They show, once again, that motorsport and solidarity join forces when it is most needed. Applause for all and lots of encouragement.
