Having lived in Thailand for 20 years I can not see this race ever happening. The government (ie the family of Thaksin and his sister the PM) have pledged to support the project 60%. The other 40% is to come from sponsors such as Red Bull and Singha. I know the route well and to upgrade the road surface will cost millions. To provide the night-lighting will cost millions. All the rest will cost millions. The 'government' will see this as an opportunity to pledge 60% (of tax-payer money) but get Red Bull and Singha to put up the real money while government individuals make millions of dollars (from the tax-payers) by having their family businesses supply sub-standard road surfaces, sub-standard lighting etc etc. I will be very surprised if this ever happens. But things will at least start so that tax-payer money finds its way into the pockets of corrupt government officials before the next election. Welcome to Thailand!
