The PT Grand Prix of Thailand 2024 is poised to be a highlight on the global motorsport calendar. Taking place from October 25-27 at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram, this electrifying event is expected to capture the attention of over 800 million viewers from more than 200 countries.

 

Phonpoom Vipattipumiprates, Vice Minister for Tourism and Sports, recently emphasized the significant economic advantages of hosting the MotoGP event. Last year, the Grand Prix attracted nearly 180,000 spectators, led to an 11% uptick in international tourism, and raked in over 4.493 billion baht in local expenditure.

 

Gongsak Yodmani, Governor of the Sports Authority of Thailand, spotlighted the event's increasing popularity, with ticket sales skyrocketing every year. He also acknowledged the success of Thai racers like Somkiat Chantra and Tatchakorn Buasri, who have earned global recognition.

Narucha Kosacivilize, the Governor of Buriram, shared that this year's race is expected to generate over 6,426 jobs. Additionally, the event aims to celebrate Thai agricultural heritage through initiatives such as the “E-Tan Shuttle Service.”

 

Ferran Juncar, Senior Director of Global Sponsorship at Dorna Sports, welcomed PTG Energy Public Company Limited as the new title sponsor. Juncar praised PTG's resources and technology, considering them crucial for elevating the event's promotional reach.

 

In summary, the upcoming PT Grand Prix of Thailand 2024 promises thrilling racing action and significant economic benefits while showcasing Thailand's cultural and agricultural heritage.

 

With rising spectator numbers and substantial global interest, the event is set to further establish Thailand as a premier destination for motorsports.
