Skaife Leads Consortium To Buy Supercar..

This story is in this week's AA..



..and they loaded this image on their FB page..

Anyway, it seems that Mr Skaife may be heading a consortium of professional sports marketers, and an investment bank, to acquire the Supercar business from Archer Capital.

Could be fun..

It'd be great to be able to read the article as it turns into a pixel blur

I doubt Skaife is "leading" the consortium, more likely just the front man.

Likely that he's acting as an advisor for them if this is true

Yes, and will be a Director of the company if it comes of.

Since there's bugger all racing going on this week I suppose it makes a nice change from "skaife to make v8 comeback" or "Jason bright to race Indy 500" or "Vettel breaks ankle in testing crash, Webber to substitute" or "Brock back from the dead to win #10.

How about "Kelly racing signs Danita Patrick to enduro campaign with Simona De Silvestro, Dave Reynolds refuses to comment"?

Tyres are being kicked. There has been mention in the Financial Review that the Archer Capital investment in Supercar will be unwound sometime soon.

Is Mr Skaife the one kicking? Perhaps.. perhaps not...

Would make a great public face for a consortium... their challenge will be unlocking value from their transaction...
