Renault to hold Korean roadshow

Renault announces plans for an F1 roadshow on the streets of Seoul
Renault has announced that it will hold a roadshow event in the South Korea capital Seoul ahead of the first Korean Grand Prix.

The Seoul event will be held on the first weekend of October ahead of the event, which will take place on the 24 October as the new circuit currently being completed in Yeongam.

A specially constructed circuit will be build in Seoul for the event, which will see test driver Ho-Pin Tung complete a series of demonstration runs at the wheel of a Renault R29.

The event will be held in partnership with Renault Samsung Motors, South Korea's number three auto maker, and the organisers of the Formula 1 Korean Grand Prix, South Jeolla Provinicial Government and Korean Auto Valley Operation.

“Every time we race in a new country, we are provided with an exciting opportunity to reach out to a new public and to win new fans, by introducing them to the thrill of Formula 1,” Renault team principal Eric Boullier said. “When it comes to the Korean Grand Prix, it makes sense that the Renault F1 Team should spearhead the sport's arrival in South Korea.

“Renault has strong links to the country, through Renault Samsung Motors, and we are proud to be giving the residents of Seoul their first experience of F1, at the beginning of a landmark month for motorsport in South Korea.”
