Spa Grand Prix aids spectators after ticket agency collapse

Nearly 6,000 ticket holders for next weekend's Belgian grand prix can heave a sigh of relief. We reported recently that paid-up clients of a company called The Ticket Enterprise (TTE) would not receive their actual tickets for the Spa-Francorchamps race because TTE had gone out of business.

But according to the Belga news agency, the organiser of the fabled and popular formula one race has agreed to allow the 5,600 affected spectators to enter Spa next weekend. The report said the news was confirmed by chief promoter Etienne Davignon at a press conference.

Davignon reportedly told the affected ticket holders to take their payment receipt to the ticket offices at the circuit next weekend, where they will sign a document ceding their rights to the promoter Spa Grand Prix.

This will allow the organiser to legally claim back from TTE the value of the tickets. "We will see how we can recover (the money)," Davignon is quoted as saying. "It is too early to judge just how much we are going to lose." (GMM)
