It’s on next weekend and Buriram is gearing up for the arrival of 100,000+ visitors. Thailand Immigration officials are also setting up home this week to handle the influx of international visitors and the teams as they arrive.
But if you’re driving, take your Honda.
AP Honda has agreed to provide special hospitality services and activities for visitors to the PTT Thailand MotoGP Grand Prix in Buriram from October 5 to 7.
Rest stations are to be erected on the three main routes to the Chang International Circuit where all commuters will be able to relax, eat, drink and have check-ups done on their vehicles.
The three stations are at Lam Takhong Dam on the Bangkok-Buriram road; the old gas station next to Khu-muang Market on the Udon Thani-Khon Kaen-Buriram road; and at the Robinson Department Store in Surin Province on the Ubon Ratchathani-Surin-Buriram route.
A shuttle service will also be provided at Honda Shuttle Station within the Circuit compound and special parking spots for Honda Thailand vehicle users, as well as a Welcome Zone for the general public.
Food and drinks will be provided at the Honda Pavilion to welcome VIP guests, members of the media, Honda Wings Centre representatives, and racers from the Honda Academy and Thailand Talent programs.
Moreover, 3,500 seats will be reserved for Honda Club cheerleaders, distributors and Honda users to cheer on their Thai and foreign favourites throughout the three-day road event.
While Thailand has no representatives in the main event, Honda’s Nakarin Athiratphuwapat and two wildcard holders – Somkiat Chantra of Honda and Apiwat Wongthananon Yamaha – will carry Thai flags into the Moto3 race.
Owners of Honda vehicles will also be able to rub shoulders with some of the stars themselves including Marquez himself, four-time MotoGP champion, and his teammate Dani Pedrosa at A.P. Honda Private Zone on the evening of October 6.
The weekend will also feature a performance by Honda team ambassadors and a concert by Palmy “Eve” Pancharoen.
A live stream of all the activities in the Honda motorcycle zone and Meet & Greet sessions will be available HERE.
