Ho Chi Minh City-based Khang Thong Group, which is developing the mega-theme park Happyland, last week launched its first speedway school according to international standards, in the southern province of Long An’s Ben Luc commune.

Covering a total area of 139,000 square metres, the speedway school can accommodate up to 25,000 spectators on various tracks. Khang Thong and Red Wing Co., Ltd will join together to organise professional-standard racing in Vietnam, sponsored by partners like RedBull, Yokohama, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, and Pirelli.

The Happyland school offers safe and professional training courses for bicycle, car, and motorbike racers. The school will open in March this year, with courses for training in racing and technical skills. It will host its first competition in April.

Director of Happyland School Nguyen Ngoc Hoan said that the school was a healthy, safe, and professional playground for racing enthusiasts in Vietnam. “Based on racing competitions, we expect to select talented riders to nurture and develop professional Vietnamese racers for regional and international tournaments,” he said.

In 2011, Khang Thong broke ground on the Happyland entertainment complex, considered the biggest tourism project in Southeast Asia. Developed on a 338ha area in Ben Luc district, the multibillion-dollar project, inspired by Disneyland, will include a $600 million theme park , a 3.7 kilometre boardwalk, a shopping centre, three- to five-star hotels, water parks, studios, indoor and outdoor theaters, restaurants, a floating market, and other facilities.
