The best action of the day came in the support categories, the pick-ups providing a never ending stream of clashes, bumps, off track excursions, door closing manoeuvres (maybe that should be tailgate-closing?) and bodywork shedding moments, all to a haze of thick black plumes of exhaust smoke that wouldnt be sanctioned anywhere else. These cars boast rear spoilers perched at the back seemingly in defiance of aerodynamic principles and at least one of these appendages was detached with a bang in the chicane, while one reached the line at full tilt, but with a heavily reshaped three-quarter panel that will give a bodyshop somewhere in Thailand a very busy few days before final round in Bangsaen looms into view. A curious choice of driving lines was clearly in evidence throughout the race and they certainly kept the crowd thoroughly entertained. For the record Nana (Mitsubishi Triton) won the race 6.732 seconds ahead of Jarat (Chevrolet Colorado) with Yut in another Triton taking the last step on the podium.
