Silverstone cancelled
« on: August 26, 2018, 06:32:38 PM »
Just wondering since motogp at Silverstone was cancelled do the
Ticket holders get any compensation for that. Refund or whatever?
As I’m sure you know the motogp is not a cheap week end endeavor.

I would have thought that a refund was on the cards as it was the track condition that caused the cancellation. Consequently, any refunds should be covered by the organisers insurance policy.

Can't see any official update yet on this though which is dissappointing, guess more will be known in the next few days.

Update from Silverstone on Twitter:

"Please be reassured that we will be contacting all bookers that have been affected by today's cancellation of the event within the next week. Please take care travelling home #BritishGP"

Having been there over the weekend their will obviously be some financial fall out over who pays have a look at Stuart Pringle’s press statement(Siverstone track)about they didn’t cancel the event the riders did.

Interestingly it's BSB at Silverstone next weekend and they've switched it to the shorter National Circuit in view of what happened with MotoGP:

Hope it doesn't rain...  :164:

Just read that some of the GP teams are Blaming the course and administration, for the problems that lead to the cancellation. Not as I had read earlier, that it was the riders that refused to ride..  ?????   I thought it was the weather  :027: :027:

The things you can be sure of it was never going to happen on Monday the last time in Qatar it cost £5 million,and most of the paddock had ferry tickets booked to be in Aragon for a test on Wednesday.

Hopefully various parties will come to an arrangement to pay the punters out or at least tickets for next year, along with Jonathan Palmer agitating in the back ground to get the GP back to Donington.

Just glad we spent the day in here apart from opening day at the NEC bike show it proved to be a great social day hopefully Aragon will be drier but all things are possible  :164:
