Pattaya roads ready for F1

Thailand is considering Bangkok and Pattaya as potential host cities for Formula 1, aiming to boost sports tourism in the country.

Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin announced on Sunday that U-Tapao Airport, Pattaya, and Bangkok are in the running to host the event. He shared this on X after visiting U-Tapao Airport in Rayong and Jomtien Beach in Pattaya to assess their suitability for hosting F1 if approved.

“In our pursuit of hosting F1, the U-Tapao Airport Project includes a facility designed for ‘circuit races’ with maximum safety,” he wrote. “Bangkok and Pattaya are being considered for ‘city races,’ showcasing the City of Angels and scenic beachside routes.”

During a visit to Italy in May, the Prime Minister expressed his hope for constructing a race track near U-Tapao Airport.

Thailand faces competition from South Korea and Indonesia to secure an additional Asian stop for F1. The Prime Minister mentioned that Thailand is prepared to build the circuit in 2027 or 2028 if selected.

Singapore currently uses its streets for the Singapore Grand Prix.
