Track time Thailand is eagerly repeating its bike racing event. The recurring Petchaburi event is the event that bike lovers can’t wait to see at Kaeng Krachan Circuit, the second-largest race circuit in Thailand. The biking event is hosting its 8th edition on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March 2022.
On Saturday, 5 March, the event presents a 2-hour endurance race with a minimum of 10 different teams of 2 bikes and riders. On Sunday, the following day, the real stuff plays out with 2-3 races happening.
Bike Racing in Petchaburi
The first bike racing event is for bikes under 550CC, and the second race, you probably guessed it, is for bikes above 550 CC. If there is enough time, enjoy the Naked Unlimited part.
The idea of the track time races was born during COVID-time lockdowns when several motorbike fanatics boiled thoughts that formed the basis for the current event.
Bike Racing in a Controlled and Safe Way
The Track time events take place at the Kaeng Krachan Racetrack. A whole weekend costs 2,750 Thai Baht, plus Barbecue and drink are 3,000 Thai Baht. The catering comes from L’Occitan, a modern medittereanean restaurant in Hua Hin. From Bangkok, it takes around 2 hours and 17 minutes to get to the racetrack. Another way is to fly to the nearest airport.
Three different categories apply during Track time. The green ride is for starting riders who love to try and enjoy track racing the first time. Yellow is for more experienced intermediate skilled riders. Stay out of the way for the red as these are the drivers who go for curves and speed.
