at last someone is prepared to do something for the unfortunate haitians. but it worries me to see that valencia say "some...of the ticket price". lets hope that it is ALL or MOST of the ticket price. perhaps the teams, with bernie could also make a contribution to the fund.

Richard, they have to at least be able to break even, I'm surprised after the amount Bernie charges the circuits they can afford to do this.

It would be a far more generous if Bernie were to donate all the track fees to Haiti

jd, i would imagine that ALL charges for testing are paid by fia or bernie, as it is a designated test session, and there would be no need for spectators. the selling of tickets would only be a bonus to valencia, so they could in effect give all of the sales income to haiti, and still lose nothing.
