Second Thai MotoGP in October

The second Thai MotoGP is returning to the Chang (Buriram) International Circuit from 4th – 6th October this year following an incredible debut season in 2018

The hot and humid conditions created punishing conditions for the teams and riders, so while Marc Marquez ruled in 2018, there is no way to predict what will happen over the race weekend.

The reinvigorated circuit which reopened in 2014 has been proving popular across many disciplines of motorsport as the numerous long straights create the opportunity for riders to push the limits of their machines.

The circuit itself consists of 12 corners; 5 left turns and 7 right turns, and the longest straight is over 3000 ft which riders approach from the exit of Turn 1 adding emphasis to the all-important start.

The Thai GP was an incredible success in 2018 and was named the best of the season.  The event at Buriram was also the best attended across the season with over 220,000 people heading to the circuit over the three days.
