@formula-1 – It won’t necessarily be £350,000,000, since I believe that’s for the entire Caterham group, and we’re just after the F1 team. And besides, even if it is purchased by someone else, why should that stop us? There won’t always be a grid full of teams, and with enough determination, there’s no reason we can’t get there.
The more I think about it and talk with @bradley13, the more plausible this becomes. Just think of the publicity from a team funded solely by fan support. Right now, I want this more than anything ^_^
@mathers – Because of work I haven’t created the new account yet, but I’ll do that when I finish work today. However, we did get a tweet back from Steve Hood :) it’s nothing big, but it’s obviously something that generates a little interest with people.
@mathers, @jamiefranklinf1 – Agreed. Portsmouth Football Club is owned by the fans, so why can’t we own an F1 team? By the way, we should probably check with Keith that’s it ok for us to use the F1 Fanatic name. @keithcollantine, are you happy for us to go ahead with this?
@mathers – Exactly what I was thinking :). With Caterham looking to sell, and Sauber reportedly in a lot of trouble, we have the perfect opportunity in the next two weeks to sort things out, and if we can get one mention from someone on Sky or the BBC, just imagine the interest that could generate!
For livery… I think there is already one? When I click F1Fanatic Researchers threads (e.g. Monaco fan videos just started by Andae23), I can’t see them, but instead see a 404 page which has an F1Fanatic liveried car crashed on it :D
