Phuket to host sixth Toyota Motorsport event

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: Get ready for some motorsport fun at Saphan Hin next month, as Toyota Motorsport returns to Phuket with its ‘Fast Fun Fest’ series for the sixth year running.

Phuket Vice Governor Prajiad Aksornthammakul joined Toyota executives at the event press conference in Phuket Town on Friday as Toyota announced its 30th year of motorsports this year.

Toyota will also hold the first ever ‘Hilux Revo One Make Race’ for vehicles with 2,400 CC engines, a real test of durability and performance, Toyota executives announced.

The other categories of the competition include ‘Corolla Altis One Make Race’, ‘Vios One Make Race’ and ‘Vios One Make Race Lady Cup’.

“Phuket will be hosting the first round of this year’s series on July 2-3,” said Toyota Pearl Managing Director Chaipat Na-Ranong.

“The next four rounds will be held from August 13-14 at Nakhon Ratchasima, September 17-18 in Chiang Mai, October 8-9 in Buriram, and November 25-27 in Chonburi.”

The event will feature special performances and other motorsport related activities. There will also be a cheering competition for four participating schools – Phuket Technology College, Phuket Wittayalai School, Satree Phuket School and Srinagarindra, the Princess Mother School.

“Motorsport fans, students, car lovers and anyone else interested in participating in an exhilarating range of activities is welcome to join the event,” said Mr Chaipat.

“We are also keen to raise awareness on road safety and give people a chance to learn more about motorsports.”

Phuket is the only province chosen as a host for six years in a row.

“We are thankful for all the support we receive in Phuket. Even though it rains most of the time we are here, people still come out to support us,” said Mr Chaipat.
