The Gongsig Asia Hangug (공식 아시아 한국) was the fourth round of the F1 Asian Series. It was held at the Korean International Circuit, Yeognam, in South Korea.

Both races were won by Goteki 45 lead driver, Superdelphinus. After the confusion of the previous round, Ajokay Motorsport switched to the Eff-One-Fiftieth-little-circle-Italia, because that's what it was called all along, not the F150, oh no, that was just short hand. Nothing to do with legal threats from Ford. Of course Ferrari, of course not... Anyway, the two races in the sea-side-swamp that the FIA likes to call a race track saw the worst performance ever for the team - a DNF and a DSQ.

A broken front wing caught the Ajokay out on lap 11, causing his car to run wide at the fast left-hander at the far side of the circuit and smash into a barrier, recording the team's first ever DNF.

The Ajokay Motorsport car was re-built in time for the sprint race, which took part in the pouring rain, but received the Hertfordshire outfit's first ever DSQ after driver Ajokay was caught talking on his mobile phone at the start of the race. The poor result took a serious hit on the moral of team members, who shelled out over £17 to be able to field a one-car team for the season.
