Korean GP Circuit

Here is the first video of the Korean GP Circuit. It looks like another Tilke Fail. Why do they keep hiring this guy.

Because Bernie is a 50% shareholder in his company, and that makes Bernie a lot of money.

I don't mind it actually given that they start with a flat sheet and a bare area.

Personally I think the best circuits are the ones designed to fit into the enviornment rather than the other way around. But since safety is such a big issue these days that will rarely, if ever, happen again.

Wow - I love the lines of bright orange traffic cones. That should help create overtaking. I know that whenever I see those on our roads, I just can't wait to get past the tosser in front...

Not sure how Bridgestone are going to play this tho'...Wets, Inters, and Soft / Medium Tractor tyres by the look of things...hey ho...

It's going to be nice to see a sub-two minute lap when it's all done. But just now, it's as featureless as Turkey, without however, the challenge of Turn 8.

I reserve judgement.

Well, regardless of the track, F1 needs to finally capitalize on Korea's rich racing history. What?

Turkey! Easily the best of the Tilkedromes.

Be even better if they replaced those tarmac run-off areas with about 20 feet of grass and nice 'soft' tyres barriers. Really see who has the balls to take Turn 8 flat!

Turn 8 isn't flat - it's slightly off-camber and slightly downhill surely... geek

But I'll go along with 20' of Bamboo Grass (Clumping variety, natch), and a selection of nice soft tyres - those 1970's Rollerball spiky-flavour should do the trick... Twisted Evil

This race is not going to happen. they don't even have half of the stands built. Look at the video game vs Redbull coverage and you will see how bad it really is.

That's grim - in the video game, you have to wear gardening gloves...

The race is October 22, and now both tilke and Bernie are distancing themselves. tilke is claiming hay he was only an advisor, and Bernie has public ally expressed doubts. He'll they haven't even passed the fia test.

If it doesn't happen, it will be great news for Webber and RBR.

I'm kinda late to this party, but just to spin it a bit the final surface isn't on the circuit in the footage of Webber driving (note curb edges being 2-3" proud of the tarmac and hence the cones). It would take a week to add the finish surface, tops.

Also, bring in a pro staging crew and they could have stands for a 100,000 erected in another week provided they've poured pads for the foundations (this gets done here every year for the Long Beach GP and for the Rose Parade). Put a small army on laying sod and another of site clean-up and you've got a game.

Now, whether or not that happens is anybody's guess, but having worked on some big projects I know what can happen. I'm sure Danny's seen a few rapid face-lifts as well.

Nobody thought the Abu Dhabi race would go ahead, they had the money, do Korea?

Not sure that Abu Dhabi had a Monsoon issue to contend with during their build...
