In the same manner as all three grand prix championships currently being contested in Asia, the battle to become the 2022 MotoGP™ eSport Champion is reaching fever pitch! Three rounds and six races in and the Global Series has already delivered its fair share of excitement. Now the fourth of five rounds in coming up, with two all-important races on Friday September 23rd at 12.00 (GMT +9).
The first race of the fourth round of the 2022 MotoGP™ Global Series will see challengers from around the world compete at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Thailand!
In March 2015, Thailand became the latest Asian country to host a world-class motorcycling event, with the Superbike World Championship held at the state-of-the-art Chang International Circuit.
The venue was opened in 2014, earning FIM Grade A and FIA Grade 1 classifications, and now strives to attract the biggest names in two and four-wheel motorsports.
2018 marked the first year MotoGP™ made its way to the Chang International Circuit.
Designed by German architect Hermann Tilke, the Buriram International Circuit opened in 2014 and will see MotoGP™ making its debut this season. Located around 410km northeast from the country’s capital of Bangkok, the town of Buriram in the Buriram province literally translates into “city of happiness”, and its typically hot and humid weather is a key feature of its Southeast Asian location.
The 4.554km layout incorporates 12 turns and has seen the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship racing at the venue since 2015. Its state-of-the-art facilities, include a total capacity for 100,000 people with various grandstands around the circuit providing incredible viewing opportunities for spectators.
It’s a track of two halves – two long straights out of turn one and three dominate the first part. Then comes your chance to make up real time in the twisty bits, with overtaking opportunities arriving at turns five, nine and twelve.
