Asian Le Mans Series

VIDEO: 100,000 Fans Pack Buriram for Asian LMS Round

Asian Le Mans Series sees record crowd in Buriram, Thailand…

An estimated 100,000 fans packed Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Thailand on Saturday for practice and qualifying for the third round of the 2015/2016 Asian Le Mans Series season.

The capacity crowd at the Hermann Tilke-designed circuit, located 270 miles northeast of Bangkok, can be attributed to a national holiday for children, who turned out in force for the family day of action.

Remarkably, it could end up being the second-most attended ACO-labeled event to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The Three Hours of Thailand is set for Sunday.
