They say a lot of stuff is going to happen here. I'll believe it when I see it. If you've been to Korea, you'd understand that there is almost no place to put a huge race track.

I heard they were building an F1 track, not sure where.

5 years ago or so, they had already built a track in Ansan, had F1 agree to come here. Then the mayor decided they wanted to do something else with it. Typical Korea.

James, if you buy the entire 3 days pass, it will be a little over $1,000.
