Motorcycle Racing Chiang Rai Thailand
I had the pleasure recently of photographing Motorcycle Racing at the 'Chiang Rai Circuit Raceway Mealao', which was built by local motorcycle enthusiast and entrepreneur Jeravut Keawkean. It is located approximately 30km from the city of Chiangrai in the far north of Thailand. The infamous Golden Triangle is only 55km away and a great day ride. I've done the ride a few times now and highly recommend it. If your a keen rider then Chiang Rai and all it has to offer should be high on y

I first met local rider and businessman Jeravut Keawkean in 2013. I'd heard a lot about him and the motorcycle track he was building, from foreign riders in Chiang Rai. He was kind enough to sit down and do an interview with me and it was great listening to his enthusiasm for what he could see was going to be a great success. He knew if a good track was built, then people would come and pay for the privilege of riding a quality track. The following images were taken over several visits.
