Mrk1 Consulting Signs Agreement With BRIC

Bahrain based Mrk1 Consulting is delighted to announce that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Buriram International Circuit (BRIC).

“Mrk1 Consulting is a respected and renowned operator of circuits at all levels and, more importantly in new and emerging markets. We are delighted that Mrk1 Consulting will be placing an experienced Circuit Manager with us for the foreseeable future and that the MD of Mrk1 Consulting will be on hand to steer us through the next 12 months of operation,” said Newin Chidchob, BRIC President and Owner.

Buriram International Circuit (BRIC) will be the first FIA Grade 1 and FIM Grade A circuit in Thailand and will take motorsport professionalism to a new high in the country. Located in Buriram, approximately 400km north of Bangkok, the track is part of the larger sports and entertainment development that already includes a 32,600 capacity soccer stadium, boutique hotel, community sporting facilities and a newly opened shooting range. As well as the circuit, the venue will also have a motocross track, drag strip, dynamic and wet handling track.

Mark Hughes, Mrk1 Consulting founder and managing director said, “I’m extremely excited about this partnership. As anyone in Thailand knows, Mr Chidchob has taken soccer to new highs in the country and I see no reason why he won’t do the same with motorsport. Buriram is an incredible brand and has a passionate following across the country and globally. I am looking forward to working with Mr Chidchob and his team to help them achieve their goals.

“As well as placing an experienced circuit manager within the Buriram team we will also be guiding them on track and event management, commercialization and operational efficiencies. One of our key strengths at Mrk1 Consulting is knowledge transfer and it is something we excel at in markets that don’t necessarily have the international experience required at this time.”

Mrk1 Consulting is a motorsport consultancy based in the Kingdom of Bahrain but with clients across the globe.
