My contact in Las Vegas says that the commissioner is talking through his hat, and reminded me that he was the only commissioner to fail to declare the $11,000 hospitality tickets that LVGP issued as a Öuh. let's say "invitation to inspect what the public purse just purchased". (Every commissioner was present at the hospitality suite, in case you were wondering). The contact also commented that it was not true that he had never met anyone who liked F1 as the commissioner had met them 3 times.

Sounds like Liberty will be doing some "palm greasing" as they say.

GM should get involved, suggest the race get blocked unless Andretti is allowed into F1!  (Sure, this just makes everything a bigger mess, but it would be a lie to say I don't find the drama between billionaires entertaining)

Absolutely brilliant Andy, how exciting. I also entered that competition - its nice to realise there is a winner and it's not all marketing! Lol, I'll also be at the race but in the cheap seats! Have a great time.

Where abouts will you be Rob?

Miles away from you Andy I'm sure.....Victory Grandstand overlooking Turn 14......I will private message you on here with my mobile number.....if you have WhatsApp then by all means message me......if we don't manage to meet up at least we can share an opinion of what we're watching  :DD :DD :DD
I'm on WhatsApp so that will be good, I'm due to do a track tour which I think is on the back of a truck so be sure to wave! LOL

Never underestimate the ability of American politicians to gum up the works. If they revoke the contract for legal reasons it could tie it up in court long enough to stop the race anyway. And that's assuming someone wants to spend the money necessary to take it to court. If the Board acts against the race, I foresee a long, tangled messy legal battle, or the race gets summarily dumped.

Obviously contract law is complicated, and can certainly derail this whole thing.

I assume that the costs sunk into the race might convince enough people that going ahead is cheaper even if it's not 100% 'legal'

General F1 Discussion / Possible Problems with Las Vegas F1 Contract
« Last post by cosworth151 on February 21, 2024, 04:57:14 PM »
A county commissioner in Las Vegas claims that Clark County (where Vegas is) never signed off on the contract for the F1 weekend there. He says only the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority signed it.

"A lot of stuff happened, and I havenít met anybody that likes Formula 1. So itís time to kind of find out,Ē says Clark County (Nev.) Commissioner Tick Segerblom. It will be brought up at the next meeting of the Commissioners.
