    When do Thais go for quality, if ‘cheap’ is an option?

    They are not from Sin City. They are returning locals. :p:p :rolleyes::rolleyes:
    Killing two birds with one stone. Visiting home and making Baht.

    Think of the housing logistics alone where would they stay until shacked up or between engagements, so they would have to be locals.
    It is win win. All that cash for the local community from naive foreigners. They could even get the full on village experience, sick kwai and all.
    I say good luck to them. :D:D

    I'm not camped out. Tomorrow is my day in the heat.

    From past experience massive crowds with hotties that only circulate the VIP areas.

    Step outside in the sun and stand on an asphalt parking lot from 2- 5:pM...will give you an idea of race conditions.
    Late afternoon thunderstorm activity will only increase the heat index hovering around 40°C with very little circulation in the covered grandstand.

    I hope you are snapping a few good shots of the race queens.

    JORGE Lorenzo pulled out of the inaugural Thailand Grand Prix on Saturday after a dramatic crash the day before that sent him tumbling off the track.

    The Ducati driver said his left wrist is “hurting a lot” and that he did not want to take more risks.

    “Now is time for recovery,” the 31-year-old Spaniard told reporters, adding that he wasn’t certain he could compete in the next race in Japan.

    Marc Marquez blamed him for the crash two weeks ago that sidelined Marquez.

    Wrong Coffee, Lorenzo blamed Marquez for the crash that injured him 2 weeks ago. Marques has not been sidelined for a long time, hard to believe though, the way he rides.

    Lorenzo has had 2 consecutive, frightening high side crashes, I think he is due some R & R.

    You are correct. Thank you for the correction. (I mixed up my Spaniards.)

    It takes a "special" person to admit when they are wrong, especially an American. :mask:

    Wombie, what does being an American have to do with it ?

    Yes Marquez, he even got all the glory today.

    It had to have been brutal on the track today as surely the heat index was +38°C in the stands.
    I surmise flashing at 150 - 190 km/h might provide some relief but I can't imagine what the surface temps were on the asphalt at 2:pM ...(45°F or more ?)

    Difficult circumstance to take pics with smartphone with standing crowd waving flags and 'bubble'-sticks along with quickness of motos.
    I spent too much time at the Chang line trying to stay lubricated.
