Motorsport’s governing body, the FIA, has issued a further warning over unauthorised companies that have been offering to sell hospitality packages to Formula 1 Grands Prix. 

In December, the FIA released a statement on a company trading as Privè Global Events, which had been providing potential customers with letters claiming to have been sent to the firm by the FIA. The letters were supposedly confirming the allocation of hospitality passes in the name of Privè customers.

Now, the FIA has added Informa Hospitality Group to the list of those offering fraudulent sales of F1 hospitality packages.

The letters have featured the FIA’s name and logo, alongside the names of real FIA staff members, as well as the FIA Formula 1 World Championship and F1 logo.

The FIA reiterated that Privè Global Events and Informa Hospitality Group are not authorised by the FIA, or any of its affiliated entities, to sell hospitality packages to Grand Prix weekends.

“The letters that these companies have been providing to its potential customers were not sent by the FIA or any authorised entities,” added a statement.

“Accordingly, any representation from these companies relating to the FIA should be ignored.”

The 2024 Formula 1 season will begin in Bahrain from February 29 – March 2.
