    1. From
      We are saddened to have to announce the postponement of the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix 2020 scheduled for June 12-13-14 2020. To our ticket holders, please be assured that all tickets for the FORMULA 1 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX 2020 will continue to be valid. As soon as the new date of the Montreal Grand Prix is confirmed, all spectators will be informed of the available options, including refund information.

      F1 is working diligently to reschedule the races that have been postponed, and are hopeful to have an update on the new calendar soon. As of now, the preliminary plan for postponed races will be to transfer the client’s original package to the new rescheduled race date, and if a hotel purchase was involved, re-book their hotel accordingly.
