News | 0 comments

Thailand is considering Bangkok and Pattaya as potential venues for hosting a Formula 1 race, aiming to enhance sports tourism within the country.


Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin announced on Sunday that U-Tapao Airport, Pattaya, and Bangkok are being evaluated as candidate locations for the prestigious event.


In a post on X following his visits to U-Tapao Airport in Rayong and Jomtien Beach in Pattaya, he examined the feasibility of these sites for Thailand’s first-ever Formula 1 race, contingent on approval from the race organizers.


“As we pursue our Formula 1 ambitions, the U-Tapao Airport Project includes a facility designed for the ‘circuit race’ type, ensuring maximum safety,” he wrote. “Meanwhile, Bangkok and Pattaya are being considered for ‘city race’ types, featuring the allure of the City of Angels and picturesque beachside routes.”


During a visit to Italy in May, the prime minister expressed his hopes for constructing a race track near U-Tapao Airport.


Thailand is in competition with South Korea and Indonesia to secure another Asian venue for Formula 1.


He stated that Thailand is prepared to build the circuit by 2027 or 2028 if selected as the next Asian host.


Singapore currently uses its city streets to host the Singapore Grand Prix.
