Ratthapark Wilairot (Feem) (Thai: รัฐภาคย์ วิไลโรจน์ (ฟิม), born April 14, 1988 in Chonburi Province, Thailand) is a motorcycle road racer from Thailand. He joined the 250cc World Championship in 2007 as a member of the Thai Honda PTT-SAG team. Wilairot competed in the 2006 Japanese Grand Prix as a wild-card and finished a respectable 10th after qualifying in 14th place. In 2006 he was runner-up in the challenging Japanese national Championship.

Ratthapark Wilairot is the eldest son of Thai veteran racer Christmas Wilairot.[1] He began junior road racing at 5 years old and first won a 50cc motocross trophy at the age of ten. Ratthapark has a younger brother Ratthapong Wilairot (Float, born 1993) who is competing in the Asia Road Racing Championship SS600 class.[2]

Wilairot currently competes in the Moto2 World Championship, with a best result of fourth at the 2010 Dutch TT. Wilairot had qualified on the front row for the first time, and challenged for the lead with eventual race winner Andrea Iannone. Title challengers Toni Elías and Thomas Lüthi later demoted Wilairot to just off the podium.[3] On 31 July 2013, Wilairot took a sabbatical from racing professionally and became a rider coach for his replacement in the Thai Honda PTT Gresini Moto2 team, Thitipong Warokorn.

On 27 December 2013, Wilairot announced an end to his sabbatical by signing with PTR for the 2014 Supersport World Championship season. He will ride a Honda CBR600RR and be sponsored by Core.
