Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey has told the organizers of the abandoned Verizon IndyCar Grand Prix of Boston that they have until the close of business today to present a refund plan to ticket holders or they will face legal action from the state.
The race which was due to take place over the Labor Day weekend was canceled earlier this month with Boston officials pulling the plug on the project.
The event has since been replaced by the return of Watkins Glen. Speaking to Boston public radio Healey commented by saying:
We have given the companies until the end of the day to come forward with a plan, Otherwise they’ll be held accountable and there will be consequences,
It is understood that the Verizon IndyCar Series are suing the organizers of the Boston Grand Prix for breach of contract.
As of lunchtime on Monday, Healey’s office had received no proposal from the organizers as to how and when the reported $2 million in ticket sales will be refunded to fans.
