    Apparently. Call my cynical, but wouldn't they have known about local noise restrictions a bit sooner than this week? Like they would have known that the O2 was a no go last year a week before the event?...

    ..everything from Drift AllStars all seems very last minute. They were promising a new venue would be annouced Thursday on here, then yesterday on Facebook and still nothing now. The last post from Drift AllStars on Facebook now implies that the replacement event won't even be in the UK.

    Facts
    -So maybe if you read the press release you may understand why it was cancelled! We have known about noise issues since 2011.Every year buildings get closer and closer to the site, new hotels, new council building new apartment blocks. We had no issues and 4 successful events at the venue. At anytime an event can be stopped in the outside area as we the NFL found out with there external event also! We where assured with the right precaution should be no issues as we met every regulation/standard. We could of run the event but why risk it if you can get cancelled half way throught and get a £50,000 fine?

    -Out of Date website-Very hard to find a venue to locate such a big international event with rrestricted timescale, hence all Wembley information had to be taken down! We took the thread down on the website linked back to 2011 page!

    -Punchestown- The team attended there last weekend as guests !! and we have a good working relationship!.There was a IDC drift event there last weekend Nothing wrong maybe ask the local drivers who dumped 40 tires on the horse racetrack! Get the real story instead of the internet rumours! A small few took a dislike to this.

    Running events in inner city venues like this run risks like this been lucky to get 4 events there. Tried our hardest and it really means in the future this style tracks need to stay on the racetracks in the UK. Luckliy our friends at BUDMAT came to the rescue and we are now drifting around the stadium .An even better replacement that wembley could never match

    -Live TV deal
    -National polish event
    -25,000 fans per day
    -45 Drivers of world class level

    Hmmm, when I purchased tickets for Wembley through the Ticket Script website page for 2 adults & 1 child including booking fee cost me £43.38 and the refund was only for £35.00

    Why? Can someone please explain this and also when the balance will he returned

    Thanks

    dont get the booking fee back ive had the same problem. out of pocket 20 quid as only got ticket price refunded, despite me emailing them saying the event was cancelled and completely out of my hands. if I had asked for a refund myself I would expect not to receive the booking fee.
