Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is pressing ahead with legal action against the organisers of the failed Boston Grand Prix Verizon IndyCar race according to the Boston Globe.
Healey had given organizers until close of business on Monday to present a repayment plan due to the fact that they owe race fans up to $2 million in race tickets sales. It is understood that the documentation that Healey received in relation to the repayment plan was insufficient.
In early 2015, Boston race organisers signed a five year contract with mayor Martin J Walsh however in April 2016, Boston officials pulled out of the race which was due to take place over Labor Day weekend in September.
Verizon IndyCar Series Vice President of Promoter Relations Stephen Starks commented by saying:
As we’ve stated before, it is the Boston Grand Prix that is responsible for distributing the funds received from all ticket sales, o this end, we are continuing our conversations with the relevant parties in Boston, including the attorney general’s office, to reach a resolution to this concern.
