South Korea GP “will be given green light” Korea Auto Valley Operation (KAVO), race organizer of the 2010 South Korea grand prix, said yesterday it is confident the circuit will pass its final inspection next week.
Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone said last month the final inspection of the track had been left dangerously late and the race, due to take place on October 24, could yet be cancelled.
Charlie Whiting, FIA (Federation Internationale de l'Automobile) race director, will visit the circuit on Monday, the day after the Japanese grand prix and less than two weeks before the Korean race. Whiting’s August visit to the coastal Yeongam circuit was postponed because the construction team had not finished laying the final track surface.
"We are in the late stages, but we'll get it done before the event," KAVO race organizer Peter Baek said as quoted by Reuters. "Everything is on schedule and everything will be done."
"The construction department have shown no worries or concerns regarding that. They know what they are doing," he added. "Definitely it will pass the test."
