The Drag Racing Northern Thai and Championship 2005 took place on May 15 at Chiang Mai 700 Years Anniversary Stadium. It was the 5th round, with 50 cars and 130 motorcycles participating.

Local “dragsters” are set to compete.

These races are organized every year from January to December run at 12 circuits. There were four cups presented by HRH Princess Soamsawalee, for 11 seconds car winner, open two wheel drive cars, 11 seconds motorcycle winner and open junior.

Anusorn Sawetkulchorn, the owner of Body Shop who organized the races, said that he hoped to build up unity amongst the northern region’s car lovers and to exchange opinions once a month about racing rules and standards. He also wants to discourage racing on public roads that could endanger others. Moreover, it was to search for new racers. Most of the drivers are young folk 17-22 years old.
