Ah, so the rumor is true... Sad, but honestly, BIRA's been deteriorating for a long time and it's been obvious that the owner's have just been milking it in recent years.

Here's the article confirming Monsterman's announcement: http://www.motorsportlives.com/other-thai-news-85.html

Hope some of the newer tracks like Bonanza and Kaeng Krachan will use this as an opportunity to improve to international standards, but TiT, not holding my breath...
