A Nevada law firm has filed a class action lawsuit against the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix on behalf of fans who were kicked out of Thursday’s disrupted practice sessions.
Opening practice for the Formula 1 race in Las Vegas was canceled after just eight minutes when a loose manhole cover caused a crash. This led to heavy delays and frustration among spectators, who had to wait nearly five hours for the second practice session. Organizers decided to clear fans from the grandstands as a safety precaution, but fans have not received refunds or an apology. Instead, they were given a $200 voucher to spend on merchandise at the venue. A law firm is now taking legal action on behalf of the spectators, seeking compensation of over $30,000 per person for damages. The LVGP spokesperson has declined to comment on the litigation and stated that their priority is providing a safe and entertaining experience for fans.
