Members of the government welcomed the development.

“I would be very pleased,” said Prime Minister Iveta Radičová, as quoted by TV Markíza. “As far as I know, the offer relates to two routes which could go through Slovakia.”

Transport Minister Jan Figeľ told the TV channel that organising the competition could also mean that some roads used by the race would be repaired.
