Thailand to host the first Air Race 1 in Asia Pasific.
Thailand will host the very first Air Race 1 in the Asia-Pacific region. Multiple races will take place at the U-tapao Royal Thai Navy Airfield in the Eastern Region on 19-20 November, 2016, marking another milestone in Thailand becoming the sports hub of the region.
The Sports Authority of Thailand under the Ministry of Tourism and Sports will be the host for the Air Race, which features eight airplanes racing simultaneously around a set course at speeds of up to 450 kmph. Air Race 1 is regarded as the aircraft equivalent of Formula 1 racing and is becoming increasingly popular around the world.
