The three racing days on November 27-28th were hosted on the real roads around the sports stadium and gymnasiums beside the breezy sea to make a testing sharp-cornered circuit on a 2 kilometre route in the area of Sapan Hin Park, Phuket Town.

There was also a fun-filled fair of interactive activities for all the family to join in, including games, contests, shows, go karts and remote controlled cars, shiny custom cars and of course plenty of ‘pretties’ or cool chics posing for photos. Enjoy our examples!
