Wet weather possible for Korea F1 event (GMM) There is a chance of another rain-affected grand prix event this weekend.
The forecast for the city of Mokpo - the closest to the Yeongam venue in Korea's Jeollanam-do province - is not predicting the kind of extreme conditions that caused qualifying for the recent Japanese grand prix to be postponed.
But the skies above the Korean International Circuit will be cool, cloudy and breezy for much of the weekend, with the chance of showers increasing late on Saturday and into the small hours of Sunday.
And some reports are forecasting a definitely wet day in Mokpo on Monday, the after the inaugural South Korean event, with the accuracy of that prediction clouded by the super-typhoon 'Megi' off China.
"I think we have a very interesting weekend ahead," said Virgin team boss John Booth.
Local reports say as few as 60,000 tickets have been sold for the three-day event so far, with the Yeongam venue still essentially under construction and the F1 event lacking a naming sponsor.
"Frankly, we have not been prepared well for our F1 debut," said Yoon Keun-Sang, the PR director for the race organizer.
"If we host this year's event successfully, the situation will be far different next year," he is quoted by the Bangkok Post.
