The very popular Honda Racing Fest is coming to Chiang Mai, with the exciting races being held on Sunday June 22. The 2.4 km circuit is on public roads which will be closed to normal traffic on that day and encompasses the area in front of the Royal Flora gardens.
Four categories of racing cars will compete on the Sunday, commencing at 10 a.m. and finishing around 4 p.m. They include the intensely competitive Civic One Make Race and Jazz One Make Race, where the drivers compete in identical race cars plus the Honda Pro Club and the Cup Race.
Honda is very involved in world motor sport, racing in the top formulae with Formula 1 and Moto-GP for motorcycles, and it is good to see the enthusiasm for the sport coming right through to local competition in Chiang Mai.
