Russian Grand Prix organisers ready to allow spectators

Russian Grand Prix organisers have confirmed their intention to stage their Formula 1 race with fans.

On Friday, F1 confirmed the Sochi Autodrom race would go ahead as originally planned on September 25-27, serving as the 10th round of the season.

At present, all races are behind closed doors, however, Russia is looking to admit spectators, and has even re-opened its booking portal to sell tickets. F1, though, will have the final say.

For now, Russia's deputy prime minister and chairman of the race organising committee, Dmitry Chernysenko said: “Russia is ready to receive teams and spectators of the Russian round of Formula 1.

"The government will provide the necessary assistance in the preparation and conduct of competitions.

"I want to note the partnership approach of the organisers, the Formula 1 group of companies, with whom we have reached a mutually beneficial agreement on holding the Russian Grand Prix.

"Formula 1 is one of the most popular international competitions in the world, and for Russian sport, it will become an important event.”

The general director of F1 experiences distributor ANO ROSGONKI, Alexey Titov added: "From year to year, the attendance of the event remains at a good level.

"We are confident that the difficulties of this year will not become a special obstacle for motorsport fans.

"We are carefully preparing for a safe reception of spectators and are waiting for everyone in the Olympic Park."
