Time’s a ticking for IndyCar Boston!
Attorney General Maura Healey has given the organizers of IndyCar Boston one week to reimburse ticket buyers for the canceled event or else! According to the Boston Globe, if the parties connected to the failed event don’t comply she will speed ahead with litigation.
Healey also subpoenaed documents from Grand Prix of Boston – the local organization that sold thousands of tickets for the event. The reason for the records? To help figure out who bought tickets and where the heck all that money went!
The deadline to respond to the attorney general’s subpoenas is June 27. We have a feeling the shit is about to hit the fan!
Back in April it was announced that IndyCar Boston would be canceled. Race organizers also announced that refunds would begin on May 1st.
Now over a month later, some people still have not received their refunds. To this we say, why the heck is it taking so long in 2016?
According to an article in the Boston Globe, all the tickets were paid for by credit card and the refunds would be processed in order of receipt. Jana Watt, spokeswoman for Grand Prix of Boston stated to the Globe, “…it is a manual process and could take some time to complete as each individual order must be processed.”
But should it be taking this long? Are they only processing one order per day? Gheesh.
IndyCar Boston’s twitter account hasn’t been updated since April 30th.
