Thursday 26-August-2010 13:29

He may race for a rival team but Karun Chandhok will complete a demonstration run of the new Korean circuit in a Red Bull racer.

Chandhok, who drives for the Hispania Racing, will take part in the September 4th event, called 'Circuit Run 2010', as both Red Bull drivers, Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel, will be unavailable.

"Red Bull Racing and I know each other from my days on the junior programme," the Indian driver said.

"The team's regular drivers weren't available due to other commitments, so I was happy to fill in.

"It'll be a real honour to be one of the first people to drive around the new Korean circuit.

"The layout looks quite good fun on paper and I look forward to driving a winning team's car there next weekend."

The inaugural Korean Grand Prix will take place on October 24th, the third last race of this year's Championship.
