Rider bio


"My racing hero is Marc Márquez and when I am not racing I like extreme sports and go karting. I also like listening to music."

"It was my father who took me racing at the start. The whole family supports me and does everything they can to help mer race. I love my family."

"My father and mother have their own business and I have a 16-year-old sister."

"I need racing success in my life, I need to become a MotoGP rider."

Tatchakorn training at home

"My best race ever was the first time that I got on the podium in the Asia Talent Cup. Race 8 of the 2018 season, our second round at Chang International Circuit, my home event in Thailand and in Race 2 that weekend I had a great ride to 3rd."

"Then in the last race of the 2018 season at Sepang, as part of the Malaysian Grand Prix I raced from last on the grid to finish 2nd."

"In 2019 I learnt a lot about the skills needed to be a rider on the Honda NSF250, throttle control and braking. GP bikes are very different for me but I don't give up and I am determined to be successful with them."
