The action had been thick and furious to see the final ten riders, mounted on their nanobikes, waiting for the starting signal. At the finish it was young Nattasak Tinakorn na Ayutthaya or Nong Bai Tong, in the fourth grade of the Prince Royal’s School, and the six-year-old girl Naritsarakorn Korart, or Nong Mint who took the major positions.

Everyone seemed to have fun riding the little nanobikes and parents enjoyed watching the kids racing around, all the Valentino Rossi’s of the future.

Car Racing Club, Northern Region arranged Car Park Rally Sprint 2004 and Gymkhana Northern Championship at the Kad Cherng Doi circuit, Chiang Mai on June 5-6.

The two racing events were held to promote competitive events in the North and to prepare drivers for national and international events.

Ten drivers from Chiang Mai and nearby provinces entered the Car Park Rally Sprint. Well known driver Sakchai Hantrakul from Ralliart Thailand and Mitsubishi teams, who previously competed in the international Paris-Dakar Rally, also participated. Other national drivers, Roongsak Watchareekul and Chawarn Sintukiaw, were seen teaching new drivers useful techniques.

Anusorn Sawetkunchorn, owner of Body Shop Sport and president of the Car Racing Club, Northern region, said, “The Car Park Rally Sprint is the new choice for the new generation and originated in Singapore.”

This was the fourth event held this year and the third counting towards the championships. In future, if there are more competitors, events will be arranged at Chiang Mai department stores like Carrefour and Big C, said Anusorn.

During this year, the Gymkhana Championship will be decided over 10 rounds, using the same XO Magazine rules, which were used in the Axis Gymkhana Thailand Championship.

Anusorn added that another aim of the events was to interest teenagers in sports and discourage them from using drugs and racing in public streets.
