Thailand Super Series kicked off on Friday at the Chang International circuit. Like most race weekends the track activities are taken up with practice and qualifying for each of the classes. The Thailand Super series consists of several classes with a few of the classes mixed into each race.
The first practice session got underway with three classes , Thailand Super Compact, Thailand Super Production and Thailand Super Eco.
2nd practice included TA2 Thailand and Thailand Super Pickup
3rd practice was for the big boys, the Thailand GT3 / GTM cars
And finally the last group included Thailand Super GTC, Cayman GT4 Trophy Thailand and the Thailand Touring cars.
As you can imagine, the pits and paddock are full of racing cars from one end of the motor racing spectrum to the other from the Honda Brio to the Lamborghini Gallardo in the GT3 class.
Most of the practice and qualifying took place without incident except during the 1st official qualifying for the GT3/GTM class which saw car#57, a Lamborghini Huracan lose control and hit the barriers quite hard damaging not only the car but a section of the barrier as well. The red flags came out as the car was stranded on the track and the barrier was repaired before qualifying continued. The first session nn ended with the B-Quik racing team taking the fastest time in the Audi R8 Ultra. After a short break the second 15 minute session took place and was topped by Vattana PSC Motorsport Lamborghini Gallardo with the fastest time of the two sessions.
Saturdays action starts at 8:30 with more qualifying for the other classes with the Thailand Super Pickups being the first race at around 10:20am.
Stay tuned for further updates over the weekend.
