Spa ticket confusion for thousands of fans

By on Saturday, August 11, 2012

Up to 6,000 Formula 1 fans who bought tickets for the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps might not be able to attend the event because their tickets may not arrive, despite paying for them.

According to Dutch media, the company that sold the tickets via the Internet - The Ticket Enterprise - allegedly appears headed for bankruptcy but the investigators cannot say yet wether it’s a scam or a mistake.

“The company website has not been working for a week and the management is unreachable for both Belgian Grand Prix organizer and the Dutch police department specialized in Internet scams. The Ticket Enterprise has been working with Spa-Francorchamps for five years without any problems until this year”, Het Belang van Limburg reported today.

The Ticket Enterprise is one of the largest online motorsport ticket service providers, with 42 online shops worldwide having started selling Formula 1 tickets in 1999. The company’s Facebook account is now full of complaints from those who have yet to receive their Spa-Francorchamps tickets.

The prices of the tickets for the Belgian GP are between 130 - 550 euros. The Ticket Enterprise have not updated their Facebook profile since July 24th.

It is alleged that officials at Spa Francorchamps have received complaints about the company and have allegedly been unable to contact the company in question.
