Organizers of the Korean GP are sure construction of the new Yeongam circuit will be whole in time for the race later this year. The supporters have had to contract with a lot of negative press in recent months with some suggesting the venue won’t be ready for its opening race on October 24.
But, the latest press release reveals that construction of 80 per cent of the Korea International Circuit is complete. “We are extremely pleased with the progress of the circuit, facilities, and preparations for the Formula 1 Korean Grand Prix,” said KAVO Chief Executive Officer Yung Cho Chung.
“Construction is on schedule for completion this summer, and we have encountered no obstacles whatsoever, either logistical or political.
“The Government, at both the central and provincial level, is fully supportive of the project, and the entire country looks forward to welcoming Formula 1 to South Korea this autumn.”
