Korean GP boss to fight dismissal

Korean Grand Prix boss set to fight dismissal from role
Yung Cho Chung, the man who helped to organise the inaugural Korean Grand Prix last year, is set to take legal action after being dismissed from his role by the Korea Auto Vallery Operation.

Chung was removed from his position following an emergency board meeting last week, despite overcoming the odds to ensure the new circuit in Yeongam was ready in time for the first F1 event on Korean soil.

Despite torrential rain playing havoc with the event, the first Korean GP was deemed to be a success and was awarded the FIA race promoters' trophy, although it wasn't enough to keep Chung in his position.

A source close to Chung has now told the Korea Herald that legal action is one option with a spokesman for KAVO revealing that the former chief is in discussions with advisors over the next step.

"He said he couldn't accept the decision because there was something wrong in the procedure," Jung Ji-hyun said. "He is now in discussion with his advisers as how to file a lawsuit."
