Thailand is gearing up for the PTT Thailand Grand Prix 2019 Moto GP to be held from October 4-6 at the Chang International Circuit in Buri Ram.
Sports Authority of Thailand governor Kongsak Yodmanee chaired a meeting on Monday at which everyone involved in the preparations compared notes on the event, which is expected to draw visitors from around the world.
Kongsak said organisers had prepared a large number of concurrent activities for Thai and overseas motorsports fans.
“We were highly successful the first year, both in terms of the organising and in promoting tourism,” he said. “Last year’s event was the ‘talk of the world’ and the finale was when the Thai Moto GP event was voted the Best Grand Prix of the Year.”
Chang Circuit managing director Tanaisiri Chanwittayarom said this year’s event promises more entertainment, with music concerts, muay thai bouts and motorsports retail shops in abundance. Among the sponsors setting up booths are PTT, Chang, Honda, Yamaha and the Siam Commercial Bank.
“Motorsports fans who have not purchased tickets should hurry, because right now all the tickets for the grandstand have been sold and there’s not much left for the side stands and cheering zones for drivers such as Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez,” he said.
