On his way to the recent Japanese Formula 1 Grand Prix, Pierre stopped off in Bangkok for a few days to take part in a couple of events.
It was an interesting weekend, packed with new sights and sounds, as Pierre discovered Thailand for the first time. The trip went down very well with our team’s Thai partners. First off was the launch of a new draft cider from our friends at Moose Cider and next up was a presentation of new Casio Edifice Limited Edition Toro Rosso and Honda Racing watches. Our driver met hundreds of Formula 1 enthusiasts, as the sport becomes ever more popular in this country. In a busy schedule, Pierre squeezed in some training as well as challenging local Esports champions on a simulator and of course, he just had to try the local cuisine in the fascinating city of Bangkok. Pierre fitted in a bit of tourism, discovering more of this country that he clearly appreciated. But nothing keeps a racing driver away from a race track for long and he headed to the Chang International Circuit in Buriram, which just happened to be hosting the Thailand MotoGP that weekend. Our French driver seemed to enjoy being a spectator in the paddock for a change. He met several of the riders and watched the race, won by Honda’s Marc Marquez who, in so doing, clinched his eighth world championship title.
We want to thank Moose, Casio Edifice, PTT, MotoGP and Red Bull Thailand! Kop khun khrap!
