If you are coming to the track from Pattaya by your own car, we would suggest you take Sukhumvit Road to the north and head towards Sriracha from Pattaya until you reach M36. Turn onto M36 and drive for 4km until you see the Bira Circuit Racing Track on your right-hand side, just past the signs that lead to Siam Country Club Golf Course.
If you take a taxi to and from the racing circuit from Pattaya, it will cost you a little more than 1,000 THB roundtrip. But we recommend you take a taxi if you are worried about getting lost!
