With the 2010Formula One season down to the last three races, you can be sure that the championship contenders are gearing up for the fight of their lives to be crowned the 2010 Driver’s Champion. The first of these three races will be held in Yeongam, South Korea for the inaugural Korean Grand Prix.

As has been the case for most of the year, Red Bull Racing has released a virtual drive-around of the newly built racetrack. This time around, season points leader Mark Webber provides the voice over as he describes the Yeongam race track straight for straight and turn for turn.

The race, which will cover 55 laps - each lap runs for 3.492 miles - and cover a total distance of 192.06 miles, is set for October 24 and is fixing to be a slobber-knocker among the championship contenders with five drivers still in contention heading to the last three races of the year.

This race in particular is expected to be riveting considering that the drivers will be going full throttle against each other on a track that nobody is fully familiar with yet. That factor alone should make the inaugural Korean Grand Prix one for the books.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
