Belgian Grand Prix organisers move to alleviate fans' ticket issue

Belgian Grand Prix organisers have stepped in to assist almost 6,000 Formula 1 fans who risked not getting their tickets for next weekend's race.
Customers of 'The Ticket Enterprise' faced the prospect of missing out when the Dutch company hit financial trouble - meaning those who had paid for tickets would not get them.
In light of that problem, Spa has decided to do all it can to help – and has written to those affected by the problem to promise them that they will get their tickets in time.
In an email sent to those involved in the situation, Spa said: "Although not liable for any shortcomings of The Ticket Enterprise, with whom you have chosen to order your tickets for the Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix of August 31 and September 1 and 2, SPA GP has decided to resolve the problems encountered by purchasers wronged by this Dutch company and provide you with the tickets you had ordered."
Belgian GP organisers have told fans that they will be able to collect tickets in Belgium, and they will try and recover the money from Ticket Enterprise after the race.
