All that I know of are the events they run in Bang Saen (near Pattaya), they call it the speed festival - loads of modded street cars and a few hot rod style things.

I could not find any websites directly related to the event, but there is a bit of info here:

I am sure there are other events around the country, but this seems to be the largest that I'm aware of.

Nothing quite on the scale of Nascar, F1 or Indy though.

It is located close to the Siam Country Club Plantation Course Golf Course; driving sensibly it is about a half hours drive from central Pattaya.

Its position in relation to Pattaya can be seen on the map shown in this location page for the Plantation Course.
Access times stated on the page should be treated with some degree of scepticism; anyone familiar with Thai direction maps will probably already have some scepticism about their use of scaling :lol:
Ashamed to be English since 23rd June 2016 when England voted for racism (and economic suicide).

Humiliated to have Johnson (a racist, serial liar and hypocrite) as UK Prime Minister.
