Well, I’ve got about £1,000 saved up, so as long as I can sleep in the factory, rather than renting a flat, then I could use that :P. I could also try to convince Santander to stop sponsoring McLaren and sponsor us instead, given that I work for them xD
I may be being a bit of a buzzkill here, but does anyone else agree that maybe the drivers should be those already waiting in the wings? :P I’m thinking we approach Red Bull/Ferrari/McLaren/Mercedes for someone in their YDPs to get them a little cheaper (and hopefully be paid for it).
OK i know we’re joking in this thread. But just humour me for a second – how much would a season long sponsorship be for a rear wing advertisement, or engine cover or something of a small team? Crowd-sourcing can go a LONG way. I’d be willing to chip in a tenner :P
We could have ‘F1 Fanatic Fans’ as the advert, the letters made up from minuscule writing of all our names. How friggin COOL would that be – plus advertisement for this site. If everyone gave a tenner we could get there in no time!
@cornflakes – Me and @mathers are actually being deadly serious :-). It’s unlikely us clubbing together can get enough money unless someone on here happens to be a billionaire, but if we get enough people saying they’d like to take part then we can show people we’re serious and try and generate some media interest in the hope that someone see’s it and decides we’re worth a punt. If it’s just two blokes however, we won’t get as far. We need a solid list of names of people who’d like to try and get involved. The more people we have, the more chance we have of going further.
