Sochi '99 per cent' ready for F1

"Due to popular demand, we have decided to build another grandstand on one of the most interesting points of the circuit." - Sergey Vorobyov.

Jun.30 (GMM) The Sochi track is nearing completion, as preparations for the inaugural Russian Grand Prix race on.

Even amid speculation the Crimean crisis could derail the country's first ever F1 race, organisers have been stepping up their plans for the October debut.

Germany's SID news agency quoted promoter Sergey Vorobyov as revealing: "Due to popular demand, we have decided to build another grandstand on one of the most interesting points of the circuit."

And another official of the race promoter Omega has been quoted by the Russian news agency Interfax as saying the Sochi venue is now "99 per cent" ready for October.
