CANCELLATION OF THE 2020 FORMULA 1 VINFAST VIETNAM GRAND PRIX
Hanoi, Vietnam – After numerous discussions among the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), Formula One World Championship Ltd, the Hanoi People’s Committee, and the Vietnamese Motorsports Association (VMA), the Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation (VGPC) regrets to announce that the 2020 Formula 1 Vietnamese Grand Prix will be cancelled. This follows the initial postponement of the event in March this year.
This has been an extremely difficult but necessary decision to reach in view of the continued uncertainty caused by the global coronavirus pandemic.
Ms. Le Ngoc Chi, CEO of the Vietnam Grand Prix Corporation commented on the news earlier today: “We are unable to welcome the most exciting and prestigious motorsport series on the planet to Vietnam in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This was a very difficult decision for all of us to make but ultimately it was the only solution after carefully reviewing all safety criteria as well as the efficiency under current conditions. We thank you for your support and understanding during this uncertain period.”
VGPC will provide a full refund for all tickets purchased for the 2020 Formula 1 VinFast Vietnam Grand Prix. Customers who purchased tickets directly with VGPC will be contacted via email with further information on the refund process. Customers who purchased tickets via VGPC’s authorised ticketing agencies should contact such agencies directly for guidance.
