Article 14 : Cancellation of the event

1.

“Cancellation of the event” means the final and irrevocable decision to cancel all or part of the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix 2024.

The event is deemed to have taken place from the start of F1 practice sessions or support races.

Early stopping of the event prior to the Formula one race on the Sunday of the event, for any reason whatsoever, is not considered a cancellation of the event and will not lead to any compensation of any kind.

2.

Except in the event that the cancellation of the event is the sole responsibility of SPA GP (see point 3 below) and except in the event that the cancellation of the event is the result of force majeure (see point 4 below), tickets ordered and paid for will not be refunded.

3.

In the event of cancellation of the event by the exclusive decision of SPA GP, and provided that the decision to cancel does not come within 40 days of the first day on which the event would normally take place, SPA GP undertakes to proceed within a reasonable period of time to refund, to the bank account that will be communicated to SPA GP under the exclusive responsibility of the purchaser, the amount inclusive of VAT of the orders already paid and up to the amount of the payments effectively received by SPA GP.

Once the refund has been made to the bank account provided by the purchaser, SPA GP is relieved of all obligations and the purchaser irrevocably and unconditionally waives all claims against SPA GP.

No refund can be demanded from SPA GP if the decision to cancel is made within 40 days on which the event would normally take place.

4.

“Force majeure” means any insurmountable event, independent of any fault of SPA GP, which prevents SPA GP from performing its obligations.

The following shall constitute a case of “force majeure” : any act by a public or sporting authority (unless such act was a result of actions of SPA GP): requisition, prohibition, impediment, police measure, etc., which legally prevents SPA GP from performing the services to which they are contractually bound.

In the event of the cancellation of the event due to force majeure or prohibition/limitation of the presence of spectators due to force majeure, no penalty or compensation of any kind can be claimed from SPA GP, FIA or FOWC (including its affiliates) in accordance with the provisions of applicable Belgian law.

SPA GP will, however, endeavour to compensate its customers as far as possible and without any particular deadline.

SPA GP may thus decide, according to specific terms and conditions to be agreed, to give the choice between : postponement to the next edition; or financial compensation.

In the case of financial compensation and from the time of the refund to the bank account provided by the purchaser, SPA GP is relieved of all obligations and the purchaser irrevocably and unconditionally waives all claims against SPA GP.

No financial compensation can be demanded from SPA GP if the decision to cancel is made within 40 days in which the event would normally take place.


Article 15 : Law and jurisdiction

This contract shall be governed by Belgian law; in the event of any legal dispute, courts in the judicial district of Verviers shall have jurisdiction.
