The Korean Auto Valley Operation (KAVO) have released new images of the Korean International Circuit that is due to host the inaugural Formula One Korean Grand Prix on 24th October this year.
The circuit and facilities are due to be completed in August. All major structures have been erected, and track surfacing is currently underway.
Back in April there were concerns that the circuit would not be completed in time, but Mr. Yung Cho Chung, CEO and President of KAVO, says that everything is progressing as scheduled. “We are delighted with the progress of the project, which is both on schedule and being finished to an extremely high standard,” he said. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Korea International Circuit and our fascinating country in October.”
The Korean International Circuit is located on South Korea’s southwestern coast, in the province of Jeollanam-do. Kwangju is the closest major city to the venue, and the country’s fourth largest.
