The commercial name of the circuit is Chang International circuit, yet it is listed by its non-commercial name (Buriram International Circuit) in some countries because of alcohol restriction by their Government.
Located in one of the most picturesque places of Thailand; Buriram International Circuit has explicitly been designed by great brains including prominent race driver and track designer Hermann Tilke according to the FIA and FIM standards and potential to host Formula One and MotoGP races. The basic idea to build such a standard circuit belongs to the local politician and former cabinet minister Newin Chidchob. The construction work to build the circuit began in March 2013 with a designing plan to make the main seat grandstand in such a manner that the track should be viewable as much as possible from every seat. The circuit also enables night racing being equipped with extra lighting and other facilities.
The circuit hosted the World Superbike Championship's first ever Thailand round on 22 March 2015 and both of the races were won by UK's Jonathan Rea.
The perimeter of the venue also includes two large ponds to maintain the air circulation around the complex, reducing the humidity.
The circuit opened its gates for major racing events on 4th October 2014 by hosting the Japanese Super GT series.
The World Superbike Championship's third Thailand round took place here on 11 March 2017.
