Is there any speedway type racing in Thailand?

Recommended Posts

Seems like it would fit well and be popular.  Especially with the mayhem that often occurs.  Big motor, minimal bike.

We used to go to Poole Pirates, cripes, nearly 30 years ago now 😞 

 

Always a good evening out of beer, racing, more beer, kebab.

 

Apart from on the roads I've never seen anything like it in the Mysterious East, is it even a thing outside the UK?

Ah, the 60's, life was a lot simpler then, even the 70's were good, these days one has to be very careful of hybrids waging war!

Hmm. Someone would have to build a specific track. Then there would need to be rules. Thais generally don't like rules? 

 

Then again I don't know how much motocross there is.

I went to Cradley , Birmingham. It was forced to close in 1995 , re-opened in 2010. Speedway is popular in Denmark , Sweden and a few others. As pure a sport as drag racing.

I think of it as drag racing in the round.

I used to go to Coventry (home of the (Coventry Bees?) for the stock cars. Another sport that could be suited to Thailand but...

 

When Thais realise that speedway is ideally suited to gambling.............

My thinking exactly!  Slam, bam, a few rounds around around the track and done.  And those of us who are a bit old and ditzy can follow a few laps and see who is winning.

When I had my DT I used to use a local mechanic who ran a two bike MX team on the local circuit.  There's a small, but enthusiastic group spread across the country, holding regular events that culminate in the semi-annual MXGP of Thailand, which is part of the international FIM MX world championship.
