I'm going to end up with 2 tickets to the British Grand Prix - can I sell my spare on ebay or is that against the law?

No friends that will pay for it, more likely.

if there're only 2 i dont think there would be a problem. if the tax agency comes knocking on your door though, sorry :)

This isn't a meeting board for gay people, Shitkiss.

Rodgers

I have friends, but none that like motorsport :(

I'm happy to go down to see it alone though - no choice!

It is illegal if it says non-transferable, since those would be the conditions you bought them under. But why would that bother you ?

I've sold excess tickets before now.

Hey, Rodgers, I have an idea.

Why don't you ask a solicitor?

You know, I would have asked around in the firm but, as we dont have a specialised ticket touting dept, I doubt I'd get the right answer.

A fair point. Perhaps I jumped to conclusions.

Rodgers

Heh - just emailed Silverstone to ask if they would allow me to drive my 1979 Fiesta around the track if I booked a time for it. I wonder if their lawyers will allow them to say "Fuck off mate!"

Rodgers
08-03-2006, 16:17:31
Ooh thats encouraging - tickets in the "Bronze" areas are going for about 160 each. I have a "Gold" area ticket - I should come out smelling good here :)

Gary
08-03-2006, 17:12:43
Except for pricing out Tizzy's friends :)

Gary

So is that face value plus 500% because everyone wants one off the tout ?

Or face value - 20% discount because they bought too many and want to get rid of them ?

MoSe
08-03-2006, 17:34:00
500% on the -20% = -100% !!! :cool:

Don't you folks have something like Craig's List? I believe there is a Craig's List London now.

Nothing is illegal so long as you don't get caught doing it.
