Michelin Passion Experience: Thailand

THE-LOWDOWN was recently invited to Thailand for a week to take a detailed look at Michelin’s 2018 Passion Experience event.

The Passion Experience Program by Michelin is a once in a lifetime journey where race car drivers guide you through Buriram International Circuit.

Opened in 2014. The Buriram International Circuit is the only FIA Grade 1 circuit in Thailand. The circuit quickly became the heart of Thai motorsport with numerous local races were held.

Our experience kicked off with a briefing before heading right into workshop one, a race school session where guests were allowed the chance to follow a pace car in a single seater Formula 4 race car.

Workshop two consisted of a twisted and parallel slalom competition in a range of Porsche Cayman’s and Audi TT’s, followed by a degustation served by one of Thailand’s top chefs.

Driving sessions continued throughout workshop three, and off road experience with particular station challenges by BF Goodrich.

The final session included a hot lap session in TCR race cars before a final farewell ceremony. Check out the video above and images below to see more of what went down during our recent visit.

A special thanks to Michelin for the recent experience and first hand testing of their range of tyres. To learn more about Michelin including their large range of tyres, visit www.MICHELIN.com.au.
