About 500 motorcyclists plus some 1,500 spectators joined the first motorbike race organized by Chachoengsao provincial police, the street racingmilitary and the private sector as a means to discourage street racing which has caused nuisance to the public.

The event took place at about 9 pm on Saturday night on a road about 400 metres long and 18 metres wide leading to the Chachoengsao provincial administration organization in Tambon Bangkaew, Muang district. It was sponsored by business sector in the province.

Pol Maj-Gen Thiraphol Chindaluang, the provincial police chief, who presided over the race staged under the slogan “From Roads to Race Course: Fast Paedriew”, said that two racing events would be organized every month to discourage motorcycle street racers from using roads in the province as their race courses. And this was the first to be held in the eastern region.

He said that bikers who joined the race would have to follow some of the ground rules such as they must refrain from racing on arrival and leaving the race course.

In the future, the provincial police chief warned that any motorcyclists involved in illegal street racing would be dealt with harshly.
