Thailand Race Tracks Info and Directory


Ok, ok. I know what you’re thinking. “This blog is supposed to be about Motorcycle Touring and where to go”.  Well, maybe I need to clarify.  This blog is supposed to be about safe motorcycle touring and where to ride.  The only way to be safe is to practice safety but it’s also very important to be able to do this in a safe environment. On the track not only can push your bike closer to its limits without the worry of a semi-truck side swiping you.  You can also get a better feel for the maximum lean angles and how your bike responds to more aggressive riding.  I know everyone out there, myself included, have had their moments.  Maybe you came into the turn too hot and ran straight through or maybe you trusted your tires and leaned into it and managed to pull it off.  I have been in both of these categories.  I owe the fact that I was able to join the latter category, a few times when I should have been in the former, to being able to practice on the track.  So this is why I bring all of you the Thailand Track Directory.  Hope you enjoy and find it useful.

  2. Ideal for team building days, we can also organise multiple Rage Buggy activities such as laser clay shooting, archery or 4×4 driving as well as lunch or dinner and drinks at one of the many first class local eateries. Alternatively in the summer months you might choose to end your corporate rally driving day with an informal team BBQ at the venue. Whatever your requirements, we can create a rally driving experience day tailored to suit your business needs.
