The Korean International Circuit is located in the South Jeolla province, Korea, and is an international motor racing circuit.
The circuit was designed by the renowned German, Hermann Tilke, and is still under construction – hoping to be completed by July 2010. It will be a semi-permanent structure, with the temporary aspect along the harbour side, so spectators can view the race along the promenade, the hotels and yachts on the water.
The track has a seven year deal to be host to the Formula One Korean Grand Prix from 2010, with a seven year deal, which could be increased to 12. The 2010 Korean Grand Prix will be the first to be held in the nation.
