Barcelona organisers are unapologetic after putting tickets on sale for a 2014 Spanish Formula 1 Grand Prix, and apparently on track for a full scale confrontation with Valencia organisers.
Valencia, absent from this year’s schedule, this week expressed surprise that tickets for a Formula 1 race at the Circuit de Catalunya have gone on sale.
Valencia vice president Jose Ciscar said a “verbal agreement” between the port city and Barcelona to alternate a single Spanish F1 race, starting with Valencia in 2014, is now “in force”.
But Barcelona circuit president Vicenc Aguilera told Spain’s Marca sports newspaper: “We have a contract until 2016 and we will organise [a race] every year until then.
“Indeed, if we can, we’ll do even more years,” he added. (GMM)
