An idea for struggling F1 races
Selling F1 tickets is not always an easy task but the Americans have come up with an idea which will go down pretty well in countries where gambling is big news. Tickets for the Bank of America 500 NASCAR race at Charlotte on October 13 are being sold with free lottery tickets if spectators buy them in the next few days. Each ticket sold will include a North Carolina Education Lottery Powerball ticket which gives access to a prize that starts at $15m and goes up until someone wins it. The draw will be made on the night of the race.
