He is building Buriram United International Circuit (Bric) on a 1000 rai plot near I-Mobile football stadium.

While I-Mobile is the country's biggest privately owned stadium, Bric, scheduled to be complete in October 2014, will become the country's biggest racing circuit.

Newin, chairman of the Bric project, yesterday signed a two-year, 120 million baht contract to bring Japan's Super GT series to the Bric.

The inaugural Super GT race at the Bric, designed by German engineer Hermann Tilke, will take place in October next year.

''Buri Ram province will become a sports city,'' said Newin.

The contract was signed by Newin and Super GT chairman Masaaki Bandoh.
