Silverstone Director appealed to the fansMarch 21, 2020
In the UK, they are monitoring the situation, postponing and canceling major events in connection with the coronavirus. Although nothing is threatening the Grand Prix scheduled for mid-July at Silverstone, the owners of the track are preparing for the worst-case scenario. Raceway director Stuart Pringle wrote an open letter to the fans.
Stuart Pringle: “In this letter I want to provide the latest news on how things are going with future events at Silverstone in a situation where our country continues to fight with coronavirus.
This week, sports executives announced that all motorsport events in the UK have been delayed until the end of April 2020 to support the British government’s efforts to control the spread of the virus.
Many of you have booked tickets for our summer events, including the UK Grand Prix and the MotoGP stage, and I understand perfectly well that you want to know if they will take place. In fact, as is the case with many international sporting events around the world, we cannot predict how the situation will change by the summer. Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly promise you that everyone at Silverstone, Formula 1 and MotoGP are doing everything possible to hold these events on the scheduled dates in July (Formula 1) and August (MotoGP).
In fact, as the Formula 1 CEO Chase Carey said, the FOM and FIA expect the season in Europe to begin no earlier than June, but these deadlines are constantly being reviewed. I would like to reassure the fans that if we have to cancel any of these Grand Prix, then everyone who purchased the tickets will have the opportunity to return their full price.
We will continue to keep you updated on the situation as the situation in the UK changes, and taking this opportunity, I would like to thank you for your support and patience in such a difficult time for everyone. I hope that you and your family members are safe. ”
