Picnic races at Bira this weekend

Friday, 07 December 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 49 By  Dr. Iain Corness

The final Nitto 3K race meeting for 2012 is being held at the Bira Circuit (Highway 36) on December 8 and 9.  These events are ‘picnic races’ and are fairly laid back and low key, though the driving is just as cut and thrust as that in the more professional categories.

Cars racing include the Isuzu Pick-up challenge, Thailand touring cars, the Retro series and more.

And if you want to really make a picnic of it, join us in the AA Insurance Brokers / Sausage King hospitality tent on Sunday where we offer cold drinks, some shade, seats and a sausage sizzle courtesy of the Sausage King.  The tent is on the outside of the hairpin at the end of the straight and has good views of the cars going through that corner and up the hill, then down the back through the difficult and dangerous sweeping right hander.

To find us, come into the circuit via the back gate leading to the pits, about 200 meters on the left before approaching the main entrance off Highway 36 coming from the Satahip end.  Go through the tunnel under the track and then turn immediately hard right and follow the dirt road around the outside of the corner and up the incline and look for the red AA hospitality tent.  Say the magic words “Securitas Mk1 Escort” and you’re in!
