Spotted this on Le Mans Who, When, Where FB group

So how long till this thread gets shut down?


"Apologies for the mass tagging. We have got into some hot water with the ACO over ticket resales. They would like it if you went through their own resale website.
"Ticketing resell is strictly prohibited and can be punished by a fine of 15 000 euros (article 316-6-2 of the French penal code)."
So rather upsetting as it is can I ask members NOT to post tickets for sale here please.
It seems absolutely bananas to me that you can't sell on what you've bought with your own money. I don't agree with it but it is what it is."

From another very large group on FB

Trying to make it so no one can sell elsewhere? Wonder if they will approach here, Pistonheads and also Ebay where majority get sold..........

No madness as far as I'm concerned.  There are a lot of tickets coming up on the resale site.  In this e-ticket day and age, you're taking a huge risk now buying them from eBay and even from anyone you don't really know.  I both bought a ticket on the resale site and sold a ticket back last year.  Makes perfect sense to me.   There were actually only a fraction of the normal number of tickets available on eBay for this year's event and there have been hardly any since ticketing opened and the event sold out.    I suspect that sales/swaps on forums like this, PH and Ten Tenths actually account for a tiny fraction of the tickets sold - certainly nothing like a majority.  Let's face it, there's only a post every 2-3 weeks here....   Wink

To be fair, the resale site actually works too, we sold a couple of spares via it this year. Once sold the ACO return you the money you initially spent on the ticket and the buyer gets their ticket with the knowledge that it's genuine. We've lost heaps in the past selling over-priced agency GE's (you know the deal, must buy two per camping space even if you don't need them) via ebay just to recover some of the spend, so this seems a pretty fair solution to me.
