Free Tickets for the Red Bull Air Race (continued)

Well with only a few days to go the saga of the free tickets that Greenwich Council have been given by Red Bull for the Air Race continues....

I'd read that someone appears to have got some tickets, click here to see their post.

And then today I get an email from the council saying:

The Red Bull Air Race World Series is coming to London for the very first time this weekend.

Five lucky GreenwichCard holders can each win a pair of grandstand tickets at The O2 to watch the racing on Saturday 28 July.

To enter the draw please email your name, address and telephone number to greenwichcard@greenwich.gov.uk.

The draw will take place on Thursday 26 July at midday and winners will be notified by telephone.

To find out more about the race and how you can buy tickets for both days, follow the link below:

So if you've got a Greenwich Card and you've not got tickets give it a go.

To the best of my knowledge this is the first time that the Council have proactively shouted (well emailed the small percentage of Greenwich Residents on their emailing list) out that they've got free tickets that are meant for "us". I don't think they ever made a mention of them in the Greenwich Time paper. Indeed in the latest issue there's only mention that you can buy tickets, and that's tucked away near the page on page 19.

Anyway as I've said give it a go if you're not going already.

Hopefully once the day passes someone will provide me with some information on how the tickets were actually distributed.

Edited to add: I've also received an email saying that someone else has received a pair of tickets so they are on there way out to people.

Following on from reading the posting on this weblog I applied to the council for a couple of the free tickets. I received two through the post the other day- so thanks for the tip-off- I'm looking forward to the event.
