This is a must-watch for car rac­ing fans. The French Grand Prix, a leg­endary race in the For­mu­la 1 world cham­pi­onship, gath­ers the top 20 inter­na­tion­al F1 dri­vers. They race each oth­er on the Paul Ricard race­track that was ful­ly ren­o­vat­ed for that unmiss­able event return­ing to France at the Castel­let, in the Var region, after a 10 year break.

51,000 grandstand seats

For this large-scale event, the Grand Prix de France – Le Castel­let trust­ed Weezevent, not only for its tick­et sales and access con­trol, but also and more impor­tant­ly for allo­cat­ed seat­ing. 20 grand­stands were spe­cial­ly built for the occa­sion along the race­track to offer view­points over 6 areas, includ­ing the start line and the fin­ish turn. Thus, thanks to our cus­tom tick­et mod­ule, par­tic­i­pants could choose their seat­ing area first, their grand­stand, then their tick­et type. Then our smart allo­ca­tion sys­tem assigns a seat to the cus­tomer.

160,000 people to welcome

With close to 45% of sales made by Decem­ber, wait­ing time and high turnout were expect­ed. Our WeezA­c­cess check-in solu­tion allowed to con­trol access at the event’s sev­en entrances based on the cat­e­gories of atten­dees and seat­ing area access. Our teams on the ground trained vol­un­teers and ensured smooth oper­a­tions and main­te­nance of the equip­ment.
