No home for 2015 F1 Grand Prix in Thailand

Following demonstrations by Bangkok residents against the F1 race being held in historic Rattanakosin, the old part of the capital around the Grand Palace, Tourism Minister Somsak Phurisisak said that the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration had issued a law on May 16 which prohibits car racing in Rattanakosin.

Isaan and Phuket have offered to host the race but Phurisisak indicated the committee would look for a new site, focusing their search in the Chaengwattana Government Office Complex and Muang Thong Thani areas of the capital. 

Rag - surely anywhere within a reasonable commute of an airport would work fine and both Don Muang and U Tapoa airports are under utilised.
