Race track gets the green light

IT’S all systems go for Tenerife’s long-awaited motor-racing track. The Cabildo confirmed on Tuesday that it had awarded Italian company Ronda Ross the 30-million-euro contract to build the track and infrastructure in Atogo, Granadilla.

The building work, which will take 21 months, begins shortly. Onda Rossa has also been awarded the administrative and management contract for the next 35 years.

Cabildo President Carlos Alonso said the company had considerable experience in Italy, constructing roads, airports and car parks, and has worked on the Monza circuit.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
