Valencia runs out of seats
The European Grand Prix in Valencia has sold out all of its grandstand seating. The sale of tickets started on April 1 and after just 10 days none are left. According to the organisers nearly 40% of the seats have been sold to non-Spanish fans. The track is now looking at schemes to build more grandstands to meet further demand.
"It never crossed my mind that sell out would be reached in 10 days," said Jorge Martnez Aspar, Chief Executive of Valmor Sports.
