if you live in seoul, there are several onroad circuits. but not in seoul. you would have to drive out to suburb for about an hour. there are about four onroad circuit around suburb seoul. there is one offroad circuit at Yangjae Subway station, but it is really tiny. if you need more info let me know.

yeah, 1/10th class is pretty popular in korea. probably the most popular.... there are more nitro racing than electric....people usually go to circuits on sat afernoon or sunday. most racing takes place between may and oct. since it gets pretty cold from november. probably most challenging thing for you would be finding the way to the circuit. you know with the language problem and you don;t the way around. and in korea it would be extremely difficult for you to get to some place just with its address especially if it is outside of seoul. so it would be much easier if you can get help from someone who is familiar with directions around seoul. or someone who can speak korean. wish i could help you but I moved to canada few months ago.

a list of links to circuits around seoul

http://www.opoblueway.com/map.htm

map to the most popular onroad circuit. (about 45min from the US army base in seoul. i am assuming you are in the army )any korean should be easily able to find the way to the circuit just with this map.

good luck!!!

Thanks for the help. That opo tracks look real nice. Thanks also too you Matt. I am in the army, and I haven't ever been to Korea. What Army bases are in the area of the tracks? Maybe I could request one of them.

Don't really know much about the army bases other than there's a bunch of little ones all over the country. Most of the track seem to be around the Seoul area (capital of S. Korea) so try to get stationed around there. Osan AB is right up by Seoul and I got stationed at Kunsan which is about 3-4 hours away
