Organisers of the Belgian grand prix are concerned about the financial figures from last year's running of the much-loved formula one race at Spa-Francorchamps.

According to RTL Belgium, the event held in September last year made a loss of 3.8 million euros, moving the promoters to conclude that the displaced spectators of the French grand prix must now be targeted for attendance at Spa in 2009.

The report also revealed a Sunday attendance last year of 52,000, a full 10,000 fewer than in 2007.
