Having purchased the 3 day Grand Stand tickets for June 12-13-14 2020 at a cost of $650.00, for the 2020 Canadian Grand Prix On April 7, 2020 the race was postponed due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. On July 27, 2020, the 2020 race was officially cancelled. The organizers offered the following press release: 

Dear friends of the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix,

Following the news shared by Formula 1 last Friday, we regret to confirm that the 2020 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix unfortunately will not be presented.

Though it is difficult for us to accept this decision, we must comply. The health and safety of our employees, volunteers, partners, and of our faithful fans are and always will be our top priority.

We reserved your seats for 2021!

We know how passionate and loyal you are to F1 and to the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix, which is why the seats you had reserved for 2020 have been transferred to 2021. No further action is necessary to confirm you attendance at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in June of next year. We will communicate with you once again to let you know that your tickets are available in your account.

For those of you who unfortunately will not be able to join us in 2021, we invite you to fill out the form below. This form will serve as identification and as a confirmation of cancellation and therefore is mandatory. Should you need assistance completing the form, please reach out to our customer service department by calling 514-350-0000 or toll-free 1-855-790-1245. 

As the race organizers offered either a full refund or to roll over the tickets to the 2021 event, I chose the refund option. On the confirmation email, it states as follows:
All refund requests will be processed on a "first come first serve"  basis in the form of payment that was used to complete the purchase. All refunds will be processed within 60 days of the reception of the request.

As we are now five months past this point of being offered a full refund, and having not received the refund, as well as the Grand Prix being sponsored by tax payers money, I urge the organizers to go ahead and fully refund all ticket holders as promised! I understand we are all facing difficult financial issues, but as an individual who paid hard earned money for something that did not take place, it is only fair the promotor or organizer of the race to fully refund as promised.
