The Korea International Circuit is located approximately 370 km from Seoul. Situated in the southwestern part of the Korean peninsula, Jeollanam-do lies at the heart of the Northeast Asian region.
For overseas visitors, the closest airport is Muan Airport (30 minutes) or Gwangju Airport (70 minutes), while Gimpo International Airport is approximately 335 km away.
The Korea International Circuit is a hybrid, dual-structure circuit. The 5.615 km race circuit incorporates a partial street circuit and the 3.045 km permanent track.
Among the highlights of the track is the 1.2 km straight, the longest straight of any current Asian Formula 1 circuit. On the immediately unfolding track after the first corner, a formula 1 machine recorded 320km/hour in a recent F1 simulation.
While the majority of F1 circuits are designed to run clockwise, the KIC joins a selected group of counter- clockwise tracks.
