Thailand Super Series Buriram - the new seasons start here

20.05.2016: BURIRAM - It's just few days shy of six months since the racing engines

BURIRAM - It's just few days shy of six months since the racing engines fell silent in Bangsaen. That denoted the end of the third year of Thailand Super Series (TSS).

Now the long break is over, the chatter, expectations and hype are about to be put to bed and it's time to fire up the engines for 'Season 4', which promises to be even bigger, better and brighter that the three that have gone before it.

The most competitive season in Thailand motorsport history awaits as the 'New Era' gets set to write another chapter.

All the classes look to be strong and robust, but perhaps the closest attention is going to be focused on TCR Thailand as the first ever ‘national’ level TCR series in Asia takes to the track for its inaugural races.

There is a real buzz humming around the TCR paddock and with the strength in depth of the drivers and teams before the lights even go green it looks like TCR Thailand is going to be another new success story.

Today (Thursday) will see a full day of unofficial practice playing out on the track in Buriram out before tomorrow (Friday) sees official practice get underway in the morning followed by qualifying in the afternoon. The end of the day will wrap up with the first of three races across this coming weekend for Super Car GTM.

That will signal the start of the race weekend and over the following two days there will be a hectic programme with double header races for all the categories, apart from GTM, which is going to feature three races, continuing on from the successful introduction of that format in Bangsaen last November.

The weather could also come into over the next few days as rain is expected at some point. It's hot and close in the North East, the temperatures matching the sizzling action on track; there were storms here last week so they are likely to feature again.

By Sunday evening though 'Season 4' of TSS will be well underway and we will have our first winners and an emerging idea of exactly who is going to be very competitive from the off this year and who is going to have a lot more work to do before the series returns to here in July.
