Korean GP joins Indian CWG!
« on: Sep 23, 10, 11:45 »
Korean Race Track The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted that the “final” track inspection deadline of September 21 for the Korean Grand Prix came and went with no word from the governing body.

F1 circuits are supposed to be signed off by the FIA 90 days in advance of racing. Somewhere back in July in other words. As it is the FIA may already be breaking its own rules to stage the race on Oct 24. Now it emerges that the final inspection will be taking place within a month of the grand prix.

I understand from the FIA that this latest inspection was delayed due to a long bank holiday in Korea and that it will take place next week on the 28th. Not sure why the relevant authorities couldn’t have spotted that a long bank holiday weekend might  affect things and plan accordingly? Presumably it has been in the Korean calendar for ages?

With everything that is going on in Delhi, the state of readiness of Asian venues is in the spotlight. No one is saying that this is a similar situation (I certainly hope visitors won’t be staying in faeces-ridden hotels and on the whole would rather the ceilings of the media centre don’t collapse on us). And I believe it will eventually be signed off because Bernie is desperate for it to be signed off. But it’s not great PR for the circuit or the FIA.
Tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
