Turkey negotiates to insert 100,000 people in its return to F1

The company in charge of managing the ticket sales has confirmed its intention to Motorsport Turkey. Around 40,000 tickets have already been sold.


The last GP of Tuscany was the first race of the season with fans. The Mugello circuit housed around 3,000 people in the stands, in what was the first gesture of normalcy in times of coronavirus. Formula 1 has confirmed that Russia and Portugal will also welcome fans (about 30,000), but Turkey, which returns to the World Cup nine years later, has gone one step further and plans to bring 100,000 fans to its track.

Vural Ak, president of the company Intercity, in charge of managing the ticket sales, has confirmed to Motorsport Turkey his intention to introduce nearly 100,000 fans to the Turkish GP, which would represent about half its capacity: " We could sell the 220,000 tickets, but that will not be possible due to the covid-19. That is why we hope to have more or less 100,000 people. We are prepared for anything, if the disease worsens then perhaps the race will be held without spectators. We will always comply with the rules of social distancing ".

The return of the Great Circus to the country of the crescent has caused a tremendous furor, selling more than 40,000 tickets in just six hours. This is largely explained by the popular prices set by the organization, with tickets at € 4, while in the rest of the circuits they are between 70 and 90 euros.
