Long before many of the countries who are represented in Grand Prix racing today, Thailand was represented at that level by the great Prince Bira. Unlike certain contemporary venues, therefore, a Thai GP circuit would be very fitting and in keeping with the sport's history - and it would be marvellous therefore if it could be named in Bira's honour, some small way of compensating for the sad way this great hero's last years unfolded in London bedsits.

I've been to Thailand twice in the last two years. Great country if you ignore the 'entertainment' stuff.

I have also driven on their current Bira circuit and I would definitely like to see a new F1 track there! I think they are already building one circuit which will be ready by Jan 2011. But I guess that won't be up to the F1 standards.

Yeah a new circuit for F1 and possibly MotoGP would be awesome!

Thanks to Jasen for mentioning that there is already a circuit named after Bira! I never knew that and have now enjoyed looking it up on the web. Maybe they could develop it to F1 standards, but, whatever, a GP circuit somewhere in Thailand would be a great idea - and if it has to be a brand new one, then there's no harm in naming that after Prince Bira as well.
