From the drop of the green flag, car #34 driven by Agkachat Meeprom showcased dominant form, establishing a commanding lead early on. Meeprom’s Isuzu All new truck clocked the fastest lap time of 1:55.314, maintaining a significant gap throughout the race.

The race’s first significant incident occurred on lap 4 when car #96, driven by Pisit Limtrakool, crashed at turn 17, bringing out the safety car. Limtrakool’s Isuzu suffered considerable damage to the right side, necessitating a lengthy safety car period for recovery. The safety car remained on track until the end of lap 6, reducing the remaining laps to just three.

During the safety car period, car #20 came under investigation for speeding in the pit lane, while cars #10 and #20 had to make crucial pit stops. The restart saw car #28 leaving a substantial gap to the leader, which was quickly capitalized upon by the chasing pack.

The drama escalated with a significant crash involving car #26 at turn 1, leaving the vehicle in the runoff area. Despite the severity, the race continued under double waved yellow flags for the remaining laps, ensuring the safety of drivers while maintaining the competitive edge.

As the race resumed, cars #69 and #10 received warnings for black smoke emissions with just two laps to go. Car #18 also faced a black smoke warning earlier in the race, reflecting the stringent regulations in place to ensure vehicle performance and environmental standards.

Car #54, driven by Saranyoo Aonjaiaue, engaged in a thrilling battle with car #90, piloted by Sangchai Wannathim. Their duel was one of the highlights, showcasing the skill and determination of both drivers.

Agkachat Meeprom (#34) secured a well-deserved victory, crossing the finish line first. Meeprom’s performance was matched by Chaiwat Kunyosyotha (#28), who finished just 2.551 seconds behind, followed by Suradet Sanjinda (#35) in third place.
