Korea GP hoping for a better race this year

Korea is expecting a smooth running of its Formula One race weekend next month.

Last year, when the new Yeongham circuit hosted the inaugural Korean grand prix, many visitors were disappointed with construction delays, poor management and the fact they had to stay in so-called ‘love motels’.

In response, local organisers Korea Auto Valley Operation (KAVO) was investigated and chief executive Chung Young-cho dismissed.

“Learning from last year, F1 organisers set out innovative ways of improving our management,” the Yonhap news agency said, quoting from a media statement.

“In terms of customer service, we expect this year’s F1 race to be much more satisfactory,” the organisers added.
