True gentleman there!

DSC and RLM have been re-spamming this Brabham thing all over twitter, don't remember such happening with Perrinn.

Me neither, which is why I was writing a lengthy letter to RLM yesternight, asking them why they weren't asking the interesting/important questions at all.
Not sure I'd have to expect an answer.

Very, very classy from Perrin. Just saw them tweet out in support of the project too.

Classy guy / team. Would be perfect if those projects pulled together in any way in future.

Brabham is a 'big(ger) name', so of course everyone wants to be talking about their crowd sourced project, but Perrinn gets little mention. At least hes hopeful and respectful.

Wow I'm quite impressed by Perrins response to the Brabham project, as others have said, it's quite a classy response. Good on him.

Frustrating: a week's passed and by now I don't expect any answer at all anymore. I'm taking home personal preference(s) in the broadcast crew(s) can make or break a project. Make one that has a "name" or break one that actually has a car.

Marketing, I hate you.

Part of me was surprised Hindy didn't mention Perrin during the interview. Part of me wasn't. It might have been at the request of Brabham, I'm not sure. But I find it hard (actually impossible) to believe they weren't all aware of the project.

I don't think a 10pm announcement on internet radio will make or break anything - merely give something a small kick-start. I'd also contest the notion that Perrin 'has a car'.

You're right, Simmi, about contesting the existence of a car. I was more referring to: Here's my
take/progress on blueprints for an LMP1, let's build and race it! vs. Here's my name, let's go racing
with something we maybe build or buy! "Marketing" places the "brand" (smoke) obviously above the
accessible engineering content.

About 'it might have been at the request of Brabham': Perrinn said (see above) he wasn't aware
of the Brabham Project. It's very, very, very hard to believe that the other way round. So that
would imply that Brabham did prefer not to have a connection to the Perrinn project. Begging the
question of the "why". As to not dilute the "brand"? A Question I would have loved being asked
and answered.

The 10pm internet radio is one thing, other sites like e.g. racer doing the same thing is another.
Still it won't make or break anything, but the circle of specialized journalists in the area isn't huge,
and if seemingly a couple of them have similar tastes/preferences and write accordingly, IMHO
they will make an impact, being the professional "multiplicators" they are. I'm neither a PR guy
nor an oceanologist, but ISTM for a tsunami to happen, some unnoticed underground earthquake
has to appear, building momentum to ultimately come up with waves that are hard to ignore. So
if you can control the centre of the quake, you might just be able to shape the waves. If RLM had
asked the question, racer might have had to, Perrinn might have gotten more exposure, the
exclusivity of the announcement dilluted, whatever. Again, I'm not a marketing guy. But Brabham
chose RLM to be #1 for a reason. And that reason is not because it's an internet radio show that
people ignore...

Again, I've supported both projects because ultimately I'd love to see them both. I love Perrinn's
response, but frankly, how else could he respond. I'm disappointed/confused in Brabham not seeing the
bigger opportunity in going to Perrinn than going solo. I'm not a marketing guy though. They might
understand.

Great post Ephaeton.

There's now an opportunity to ask question of not approaching Perrinn from Brabs himself
http://www.dailysportscar.com/2014/1...rabham-qa.html

Well assuming DSC allows 'tough' questions through their filters... if the specialist media is too afraid to ask these (and picks up preferences on who to support), someone must

thanks for the pointer, Chiana.
I indeed sent a message to GG of DSC, and we'll see where that leads.

Btw, the most "rational" explanation (to me, in my mind, not objectively for someone with absolute knowledge) for Brabham not approaching Perrinn is that IMHO Brabham thinks Perrinn's project is a walking dead and the less publicly he has to state such, the better (because he's a nice guy). And now he'll have to, heh ...

If you're trying to generate buzz and goodwill around an idea then you wouldn't necessarily shine a light in the direction of something similar that hasn't worked.

I'd probably do the same to be honest.

Maybe Perrin signed up with PB as an engineer to 'monitor progress'?
