Eric's F1 Travelogue - Korea

  • Publicado em:

Hi Guys, Eric here! Did you enjoy the incredible Far Eastern double-headers as much as me? The Japanese Grand Prix last weekend and the Korean Grand Prix on Sunday: two very contrasting locations and experiences, but variety's the spice of life and I loved them both!

Getting from one race to the next was no small logistical feat. Team personnel had a charter flight laid on from Nagoya to Guangju on Monday; the rest of us had to use planes, trains and automobiles to get to the Korean International Circuit, located 350kms south of Seoul. The journey started with a flight from Nagoya to Seoul; then there was a bus from Incheon Airport to Yongsan station; then a train from Yongam to Mokpo and, finally, a car from Mokpo to the track. Door-to-door about 12 hours.

The circuit is an impressive structure (aren't all of Hermann Tilke's designs?) and it's very spectator-friendly. There are large banks overlooking the track to improve viewing and the F1 paddock is big, but not too big.

Check out my pictures from the weekend and you’ll see what I mean!
