The problem i have with the circuit is the walls closing it in, they have completely eliminated the chance of bringing any form of motorsport to the track, but concentrating on what has been said they should sponsor a rider like Sepang International Circuit (SIC) in MotoGP with Zulfahmi Khairuddin in 125GP, that is the way to go if you want a driver in the field, although i do disagree with pay your way in to a drive situation.

Resounding success?

I had tickets to seats that didn't exist.
The circuit is still under construction so was a dust storm on Friday and Saturday, and a muddy pit on Sunday.
The track workers didn't know anything.
We were held back from entering the circuit until 20 minutes before practice on Saturday because the ticket scanning devices didn't work. Apparently people forgot that you can just look at the tickets.

Free passes were handed out to promote the race and then not honored.

People whose seats were not ready were moved to other seats. Some people were upgraded some downgraded. Reserved seating was then given out on a first come basis. So even of your seats existed, you might not get a seat because someone else had already taken it.

Foreign press and teams had to stay in Korea's notorious love motels. Some team members found that their rooms had been rented out during the day while they were at the track.

Total and complete disgrace and disaster. I traveled halfway around the world for that piece of crap? As above, no seats, mud, barely any washrooms, no amenities, no buses, traffic jams, etc.
