Super GT Racing @ Buriram

Thailand's first international-standard motor-racing track, Buriram United International Circuit (BRIC), will host the penultimate race of the international Super GT season on Saturday October 4th as its inaugural event.

Having clinched the hosting rights for Japan's renowned super-car race for two years, Newin Chidchob, president of Thai Premier League football club Buriram United who also serves as BRIC's consultant, revealed that hosting a world-class race like Super GT was a dream come true.

"BRIC was born because of our dream as motor sport lovers who wanted to see a world-class racing track in the country. It's thrilling that our track will be opened with the first-ever Super GT race staged in Thailand. The event will be a major boost to Buriram's tourism and will bring fame to the country by putting Thailand on the motor sports map."

Well-known track designer Hermann Tilke designed the circuit and the German also monitored the whole process of track building. The main feature of the track is a long straight on which drivers could race as fast as 300km per hour. Another unusual feature is that due to the design and the layout of the track the grand stand spectators can see every corner of the track, so they can follow the action from the start to the finish of the race.

Tickets for the event are available from Buriram United FC and from the International Circuit but have been selling very quickly so if your interested in going it's best to secure your tickets now. If you'd rather watch the action at home the event will be broadcast in HD on satallite.

The doors open at 8:00am, the races start later.
