The Super Eco class at the Bangsaen Grand Prix delivered an electrifying race today. Hayden Haikal, driving the Suzuki Swift for V-Are Pro Garage Racing Team x Dyno Dynamics, started from pole position and was immediately challenged by Panithan Rakpaibulsombut in the Toyota Yaris for Ruk Team Nexzter Racing.

The race began with drama as the safety car was deployed on lap 1. Car #10 faced penalties for passing under the safety car, while cars #33 and #79 were under investigation for an incident at turn 3. The action resumed on lap 4, with Hayden quickly reestablishing his lead, but Panithan stayed hot on his heels.

The first half of the race saw an intense duel between Hayden and Panithan. Both drivers traded fastest laps and engaged in thrilling side-by-side action. However, Panithan’s challenge took a hit when he clipped the wall on lap 6, losing nearly a second and consequently, his pace to stay with Hayden. From that point on, Hayden managed to create a gap, eventually finishing the race over 13 seconds ahead of Panithan.

Behind the leading pair, Visitpong Chada in car #7 and Phiranat Nuntamanop in car #45 were engaged in fierce battles for position. Car #45 and Car #26’s duel at the hairpin on lap 5 kept fans on the edge of their seats.

The race saw several incidents: car #54 was forced to pit on lap 5, car #66 spun but managed to continue, and car #67 went off at the chicane but quickly rejoined. Despite these setbacks, the drivers showed remarkable resilience and determination.
