The super-fast electric cars will be screaming through the streets of the city on June 22nd – and those living alongside the track are selling places on their balcony for a grandstand seat.

All the official seats are now sold out.

Workers are already preparing for the race, removing traffic islands and setting up crash barriers.

One resident, Davide, told the press he’s selling space at 50 francs a seat. He’s also adding unlimited beer and food for a further 40.

Or a whole balcony for CHF 200 is also available online.

Many people have hung banners from their windows offering places for sale.
