As a general contractor, BUNTE Bau from Papenburg, the new owner of the facility since June 2005, was responsible for the construction of the MOTOPARK. For the architects involved, the construction of a race track was new territory. Existing routes were used as a “model example”, with the emphasis on the individual design of the MOTOPARK. The first six months were marked by earthworks. In total, more than 1.25 million cubic meters of curb was moved during this time. The civil engineering work alone required more than 40,000 working hours.
