This weekend (31/10 and 1/11) the World Touring Cars circus is coming to our own Chang International Circuit for a festival of speed and skill. It’s the first time this event has been held here (and the first time for an FIA event in Thailand) and it promises to be a wonderful weekend of racing with the potential for a world champion to be crowned on Thai soil.
The season has 12 races of which this is the penultimate race, the final one being in Qatar in November. Currently, José María López is leading the standings from Yvan Miller and a high placed finish will confirm him as World Champion.
The Buriram Chang International Circuit is located 400 kilometres north-east of Bangkok and can be reached by road, rail or air, the nearest airport being Buriram Airport, 30 kms north of the town.
Buriram is one of the most up and coming towns in Thailand, not only hosting the racing circuit but also the current Thai Premier League football champions, Buriram United.
Coame up and enjoy the racing, enjoy the town and explore this lesser known area of Thailand.
