Coming very very soon, the World Super Bike Circus will be hitting our home town, Buriram. Following a visit from “The Doctor”, Valentino Rossi, last month, to check on the facilities, the town is gearing up to host its biggest ever event. Join us and welcome the 2015 World Superbikes to Buriram.
Excitement is mounting as the town of Buriram continues its rise to be the sporting capital of Isaan (the north-eastern region of Thailand). Over the weekend of 20/21/22 March 2015 there will be practice sessions, qualifying, warm-ups and, finally, two adrenaline filled, high speed, exhilarating races of the Sunday, all in front of a capacity crowd of nearly 50,000 people. One lap of the Grade 1 track is just over 4.5kms in length with 12 corners, a mixture of sweeping curves and tight turns.
We expect people to come from all over the world and stay around the town of Buriram (and the nearby towns of Nakon Ratchesima, Surin and even Bangkok and hope that they experience and hospitality that Isaan, and Buriram in particular, are famous for. For those needing some help with their travel, please contact us. Buriram can be reached by road, plane, bus and train so make a choice and enjoy the journey.
The track itself is about 6kms from the town centre, located adjacent to Thunder Castle, aka the New I-Mobile Stadium, home of the mighty Buriram United (current Thai Premier League Champions). Currently, there is a game scheduled on the Sunday evening, after the final race. Stick around and support us as we take on SriSaket, one of our local rivals.
If you are one of those fans who plan to come and see us, stay around for a few days. Visit the nearby sights of Khao Khadong in the town and the fabulous, ancient Khmer Temples of Phanom Rung and Muang Tham, a short 30 minute drive from the town. Enjoy the local cuisine, chat to the locals and sample our nightlife. Popular places to chill out include the Motown Bar, the Bus Bar and many others. For those who like some live music there’s Tawan Daeng and if you want to have a little dance you could join the younger crowd at Speed Disco.
