The integration with Travel Destinations is part of the network’s strategic vision to make Motorsport Ticket a truly global platform.

Already available in seven languages ​​and five currencies, the new platform launched at the end of the year will expand to accommodate fifteen languages ​​as part of its first two-year roadmap, delivering a fully immersive and seamless brand experience to an ever-growing clientele. .
