Korean Grand Prix Track Being Inspected

VOA Breaking News
October 11, 2010 at 11:45 am

Motorsports’ world governing body has opened its inspection of the newly completed race track that is scheduled to host South Korea’s first Formula One race.

Organizers for the Korean Grand Prix said Monday that FIA technical delegate Charlie Whiting arrived to evaluate the Yeongam circuit, less than two weeks before the scheduled race. His inspection could last until Tuesday, with a decision expected on Wednesday.

After construction fell several months behind schedule because of bad weather, Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone expressed concern over whether the track would be ready for the October 24 race.

The final layer of the Yeongam circuit was completed last week. If the track does not pass its inspection, the Korean Grand Prix will be scrapped for both the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Some information in this story was provided by AP and AFP.
