Bangsaen, 4 November 2010, [Pattaya Daily News]: The Bangsaen Thailand Speed Festival 2010, the motor racing event of the year, will be held from 10 – 14 November at Bangsaen Beach, Laemthane, Khaosammuk. The press conference held at the Multipurpose Hall, Saen Suk Municipality, where this announcement was made was hosted by three dignitaries of the Khunpluem family: Messrs. Sonthaya, Witthaya and Narongchai. The three Khunpluems were representing three of the event sponsors, namely the Royal Automobile Association of Thailand, Chonburi Provincial Administration Organization, and Saen Suk Municipality, respectively. Other sponsors include the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, TAT and the Sports Authority of  Thailand.

This will be the fourth Bangsaen Thailand Speed Festival. Initially, it took time to gain acceptance with the local populace due to the noise, the erection of steel fencing and the disruption to trade. However, as the organisation improved and a considerable amount of income was generated, the event rapidly increased in popularity and became a matter of local pride. Mr. Sonthaya stated that Bangsaen was the only locale in the vicinity where a standard length race track of 3,700 metres could be accommodated, safely.

There will be over 300 famous competitors and the organisers are expecting over 100,000 spectators: local residents, both Thai and expat, and foreign tourists. The event is expected to generate Bt300 million in revenue.
