Italian Police Warn of Forged F1 Tickets

Friday April 13th, 2001

Police have discovered forgers in southern Italy producing tickets for Sunday's San Marino Formula One Grand Prix, organisers warned on Friday.

"The printing of forged tickets is as usual a huge problem," they said in a press release.

"At Nocera Inferiore in the Salerno area, the Carabinieri have discovered a printing house 'specialised' in the production of forged tickets for the San Marino GP.

"The Carabinieri, during normal controls, have also discovered people trying to sell false tickets in the surroundings of the circuit."

Sunday's race at Imola, not far from Ferrari headquarters at Maranello and at a circuit named after the team's late founder Enzo and son Dino, is expected to be a sell out.

Last year a record 192,592 spectators attended on the three days of the Grand Prix. Ferrari's world champion Michael Schumacher has won the race for the past two years.
