Trouble at Spa

(GMMF1.NET) All is not well, again, in the world of Spa-Francorchamps' Belgian grand prix. An argument about money, according to a whisper, threatens to disrupt running of September's race in the green Ardennes. In 2003, Spa lost its spot on the F1 calendar following a dispute about local anti-tobacco advertising. This time, though, it's reportedly the circuit promoter and the surrounding regions at loggerheads. The F1 track winds through the towns of Malmedy and Stavelot — and, according to an unofficial report, the respective mayors are arguing about their share of the race's ticket admission sales. The parties will meet on 23 February.
