F1 Fanatic - F1
How fast can you get 350 million?
Don’t ask Quantum Motorsport …
@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 ^_^
@jamiefranklinf1 it seems possible doesn’t it, with enough hard work and a bit of luck on our side! They’ve done it with professional football teams, why not an F1 team? How’s the twitter going?
@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.
Hey, if we are getting interest already, just think what a targeted campaign could achieve, we need to get Crofty involved on Twitter as well!
@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!
I’ve got a mate that puts bumpers on cars, so he could be our head mechanic. Plus my Uncle’s in the carbon fibre business. So we’re half way to a Formula 1 car already! :)
Anyone good with photoshop or something similar could come up with an F1 Fanatic livery. That, I imagine would look pretty cool.
The Twitter page is in its most basic stage at the moment, but be sure to follow for more updates, and the Facebook page (and website) should be up soon too! :)
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
Oh and the Twitter is F1FGP for those who want to follow :)
We just need to get noticed eh guys… Easier said than done however!
I don’t know what I could bring, but I’d love to help
