French drop Grand Prix prices

In an effort to attract more spectators to the French Grand Prix, the organisers have dropped the price of general admission ticket prices by 20%, from 100Û in 2003 to 80Û. In addition some of the grandstand ticket prices are to be reduced by as much as 30% with special concessions for young people and competition licence holders. The aim is to make the tickets for the race amongst the cheapest in Europe and thus attract more people from outside France.

The event has been taken over this year by the Federation Francaise du Sport Automobile, the national sporting authority, after the previous promoter was unable to continue because of financial problems.

The FFSA has recently concluded a six-year agreement with the Conseil General de la Nievre, which owns the circuit.
