We haven’t had much of a chance to really see what the Korean circuit at Yeongam is like for racing, in 2010 it was too wet so we really only have 2011 to judge it by.


South Korea is a modern country with fantastic modern cities like Seoul but that doesn’t necessarily guarantee the success of the Grand Prix and crowds in 2011 were poor. The circuit is far from Seoul or other major cities for that matter, the area will be built up around the circuit which will we are told become a city circuit, but as yet the city isn’t started and the surrounding area is rural and sparsely populated.
