Inside abandoned F1 track that was £300m ‘spectacular flop’ with just four races held and rubbish left rotting in bins

COSTING £300million and designed to bring Formula 1 to a whole new audience, this 120,000 capacity race track was not short on ambition. The track was built in South Korea and made its debut 13 years ago. But it was an unsuccessful venture with the track only hosting four F1 races and and the venue now left to rot. But following the 2013 Grand Prix it all came to an end and after a few years of the track being used for smaller local racing it has now been left abandoned. There were problems during races too with the track used so little in between events that it was reported teams found rotting rubbish in the bins from the previous year’s Grand Prix.
