Thailand Super ECO
A 9 lap race that was under yellow flags and safety car for most of it! After 3 laps one car #24, Nasaran Potisonothal in a Honda Brio, became stranded on the side of the track after turn 5 which brought out the safety car. Several laps went by while the car was removed to safety. Once removed the cars started to race again but with only two laps remaining, it was going to be a wild sprint to the finish. However, not one lap went by and the yellows were out again! It was soon made safe and racing resumed with Atip Puwananon (#88) in the 88 Motor Trade Honda Brio Amaze leading the pack. However, on the last lap he suffered some engine problem and the lead was taken up by Chaiya Muang-ngam in the Morseng Racing team Honda Brio (#44). Chaiya Muang-ngam crossed the line in first place but a drive through penalty for exceeding the track boundaries was given which dropped him down to 11th place as aresult. The eventual podium was taken up by #46 Naruchit Kiatmaneesri in the Team J-One Donut Racing team Honda Brio in first place, second place went to #26 Adisak Tangphuncharoen driving the B-Quik Racing team Honda Brio and finally in third place #41 Boonyarit Supasiri also driving in a Team J-One Donut Racing team Honda Brio.

Thailand Supercar GT3/GTM Round 4
The race lined up with a few cars missing from yesterdays racing, notably car #57 the Lamborghini Huracan, which I am guessing could not be repaired for todays race. The rolling start and early laps went with no issues with the attana PSC Motorsport Lamborghini #28 leading the GT3’s from Pole Position. Behind them the GTM were being led away by car #15 the Mongkol Motorsports Porsche 991. !0 minutes in though and eventual race winner #26 B-Quik Racing team Audi R8 Ultra had a spin at corner 12, waiting a long time for the other cars to pass before it could rejoin. The safety car was called out on a couple of occasions as cars left the track and stopped in precarious positions. Car #26 B-Quik Racing team Audi R8 Ultra used the pitstop and safety Cars to good effect and eventually took a commanding lead to finish the race 1st. The Audi was followed home by the two Ferrari’s #34 and # 89. The lamborghini came in at 4th place.
