More than 100 motorcyclists took part in road racing on two roads in Pattaya early on Saturday, with no police presence to stop the illegal events.

Tipped off by local residents, reporters from The Nation went to the area at 2am and found motorcyclists gathered on Sukhumvit Road and Jomthian 2 Road in Tambon Nong Plue of Chon Buri’s Bang Lamung district.

The motorcyclists were seen racing from Theppasit Intersection to Chaiyapruek Intersection on Sukhumvit Road.

Several of them showed off by raising their front wheels during the race.
