Good news for the Asian Le Mans Series: it appears that the issues regarding the control of management rights of the circuit between two of the main stakeholders Inje Speedium and KRF have been solved on Monday morning by the series organizers.
As per the series Managing Director Mark Thomas in a message sent on Sunday:
"We are currently working with all parties which include the Inje County Government, Inje Speedium and KRF to seek a solution to the current impasse and we hope the find resolution to the situation. Therefore at this time we recommend that all Asian Le Mans Series stakeholders, teams and partners and well as support race partners and their personnel put on hold their travel plans to to Korea until further notice. If anyone cannot change their flights and were meant to stay at circuit hotel or condominium we suggest you look for alternative accommodation until situation is resolved. We have set-up a key meeting with all parties in Korean tomorrow afternoon and will make final decision whether to go ahead with the race at the latest 12pm midday Korean time on Monday 29th July 2013."
The situation was solved during that meeting and the inaugural Asian Le Mans Series race will therefore happen this weekend at Inje Speedium, South Korea.
