Thai Prime Minister Eyes Pattaya, Na Jomtien for Formula One Race

Pattaya —

Thailand’s Prime Minister Mr. Srettha Thavisin personally visited the beachfront area of Na Jomtien today to assess its suitability for hosting a Formula One Grand Prix.

Mr. Srettha was accompanied by several officials, including Mr. Poramase Ngampiches, the Mayor of Pattaya, and representatives from Formula One.

Mr. Srettha engaged in a brief discussion with Formula One representatives before departing for the Laem Chabang Port in Sri Racha, Chonburi for another inspection. This latest visit followed an earlier inspection of another potential Formula One race venue in Baan Chang, Rayong province.

The Prime Minister said earlier today that U-Tapao airport, Pattaya, and Bangkok were the candidates to host the Formula One Grand Prix if F1 organizers allowed the race to be held in Thailand for the first time.

He wrote on X: “In pursuing our F1 goal, the U-Tapao Airport project includes a facility for the “circuit race” type which provides maximum safety; while Bangkok and Pattaya are being assessed for the “city race” type with captivating City of Angels and the scenic beachside race routes respectively.”
