TOKYO Oct 1 Fuji Speedway will refund a total
of 350 million yen ($3 million) to spectators whose seats
offered poor views of Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix, according
to Japanese media.
Organisers were inundated with complaints after thousands
of spectators struggled to see the track due to the positioning
of their seats.
"These temporary seats were set up right before the race
and we were unable to thoroughly check the conditions,"
Mainichi Newspaper quoted the president of Fuji Speedway as
Sunday's race was the first time in 30 years the Fuji
Speedway had hosted a Formula 1 grand prix.
