Event Notes: South Korean Grand Prix Organizers To Push For F1 Return

The chief of the South Korean Grand Prix said Thursday that "he would work to bring back the race" after it was dropped from the F1 calendar for '14. Park Joon-Yung, governor of the southern province of South Jeolla, where the race has been held since '10, said, "Formula One is the future of our province" (AFP, 12/5). ... A second marquee sports tournament "could be on its way to the Singapore Sports Hub." The World Club 10s Championship, a first-of-its-kind rugby union competition, is close to being finalized, "bringing together the world's top clubs to play the increasingly popular 10s version of the game." The three-day event, to be held annually at the new 55,000-capacity National Stadium, "is earmarked for its debut next July" (STRAITS TIMES, 12/5).
