Chiang Mai – Formula One Racetrack Could Happen Soon

Via: City News – Chiang Mai

Chumpol Silpa-archa, the Tourism and Sports Minister, has said that Chiang Mai could have a Formula One racetrack in the near future that will be constructed at the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek.

Chumpol addressed the press saying that firstly a feasibility study would be done, but he hopes that one of the world’s biggest sports will one day come to Thailand. And of all places the quiet Mae Hia area was the chosen place for the very lucrative event where currently Malaysia has the closest circuit to Thailand, with Singapore and the new Indian circuit next.

The ministry of Sports told the press that one of the reasons they chose Chiang Mai was because of the large amount of space around the Royal Flora site, and also because they say the site is not close to residential areas and is easily accessed.
