10th Annual Thailand Super Series

Vacation town turned competitive speedway for series' 10th anniversary

Lately, with all of the features and event coverage we've been sharing out of Thailand, you'd think there was an event happening every week — and you'd be mostly right. With so much automotive culture pulsing through its veins, Thailand caters to a number of different vehicles and motorsports enthusiasts on any given weekend.

Residents of Bangkok that need a vacation but don't want to travel too far from home often times opt for a two-hour drive to Bangsaen for some R&R. The quaint, beachfront community rarely sees foreigners and remains rather quiet. That is, until the Thailand Super Series rolls through town for a week and brings with it a unique mix of competition.

This year served as the 10th annual event and included race classes that catered to everything from 1.5L eco cars to full tilt, diesel-powered race trucks and even high-end exotics. And while we struggle to make it down to the local Starbucks for a coffee fix to work well into the night, our triggerman-at-large and current Thailand resident, Chad Burdette, made the trip down to the beach and grabbed us a bunch of photos for you to enjoy.

I don't know that any other region, per capita, houses as many modified FDs as Thailand.

Before the new Civic Type R releases globally, the FK2 CTR is the most powerful of the Civic lineage. This one features widened fenders and a large, integrated front splitter.

During the week of the event, the streets are a dedicated raceway and in the evenings, the roads are opened back up to the public.

Vehicle customization in Thailand is thriving. In fact, even their safety team medical transport looks good sitting on Enkei RPF1 wheels over Project Mu brakes and it even has a pie-cut exhaust exit!

You wish your local pizza delivery guy was driving this sexy FD, alas you'll have to deal with the tC on cut springs with no muffler and "JDM AF" stickers that screams up your street to deliver your cold pie.
