bet bernie is feeling lucky that the korean gp is part of the later fly away races!10th April 2013, 14:21 at 2:21 pm #231049diehardfanaticParticipant
@Force Maikel yeah your right. It’s just that the escalation of the situation might affect the upcoming GPs. But more to that I just hope that they are bluffing. Besides of the chances that the upcoming GPs be affected, the fact that possible war is an issue of concern. Ironically most of the South Koreans I know are not affected at all. I guess they’re just used to it.11th April 2013, 8:35 at 8:35 am #231050Aish HeydrichParticipant
Suddenly all the South Koreans are behaving like Finnish people, all calm and unfazed by this issue.11th April 2013, 15:34 at 3:34 pm #231051diehardfanaticParticipant
@Aish Heydrich Lol. It seems that s whats happening. I just have a gut feeling though that they’re just bluffing.Something funny happened to me. I laughed at myself while reading this: http://www.f1deals.com/blog/motorsport-flag-marshals.html#more-2768. I was asking myself “so that’s what that color is for, what was I thinking this whole time?”
Anyway I just thought, Are there any South Korean drivers?14th August 2013, 10:41 at 10:41 am #231053Keith CollantineKeymaster
The tensions have eased considerably in the intervening months. South Korea and North Korea are resuming talks over reopening the joint industrial zone:14th August 2013, 13:39 at 1:39 pm #231054CornflakesParticipant
Good to hear, can’t really see the race being boycotted, even if NK restart their pointless rhetoric8th September 2013, 1:47 at 1:47 am #231055Chris Yu RheeParticipant
The sky is falling!
I haven’t been here in a while, but decided to check things out because there is NOTHING in Korean media about the race. Nothing.
N. Korea is just a dog barking at the moon. I have lived in S. Korea for over a decade, and dealing with Korea for over 25 years. I can see N. Korea if I drive up the coast a bit.
There is nothing to worry about-except that it appears no one cares about the race here.

Blame the promoters. Making the public aware of the race and getting them to attend is, quite literally, their job title. They’ve clearly failed in that regard.21st September 2013, 10:12 at 10:12 am #231058Chris Yu RheeParticipant
Honestly, I blame the idiot(s) that decided to build the track in Yeongam. Koreans don’t even go there unless they are in the shipbuilding industry.
If you look at my posts from before the first race was held, I knew this whole thing would end up being a typical Korean ************. We met the director for advertising and promotional materials last year. He told us he was quitting because he couldn’t take the stress anymore. I guess he did…
There is NOTHING anywhere about the race-in Korean or English.
I was surprised last year by some Red Bull crew members-they got out of there before we did! LOL
I’m not going this year. Is anyone here going?22nd September 2013, 15:34 at 3:34 pm #231059Miguel PaezMember
