Air raceThailand is revving up to full throttle to host the prestigious Air Race 1 World Cup Thailand 2017 from 17 to 19 November, at U-Tapao International Airport located on the Royal Thai Navy Base in Sattahip, Chon Buri province. The Air Race 1 is considered as one of the fastest, most thrilling motorsports in the world and is sure to excite all who attend this high-octane aerial event.

 

 

Last year, Thailand became the first country in Asia-Pacific to successfully host a pylon air race during a test event in preparation for the full World Cup of Air Racing this year. The sport is growing dramatically year on year and is the only international air race that allows aeroplanes to race at the same time.

 

The Air Race 1 is the international level of the sport known for 100 years as formula one air racing. It is true air racing in which eight aeroplanes race competitively against each other at speeds up to 450 kilometres per hour trying to finish first after eight laps around a tight five-kilometre circuit just 10 metres off the ground.

 

The event is pulling in the crème de la crème of international air racing. This elite international pylon air race marks the 50th anniversary of ASEAN’s founding, and is part of the 10-day International Fleet Review 2017 to be held from 13 to 22 November in Pattaya City and Chon Buri’s Sattahip District.
