If I remember correctly, they were overly ambitious with their plans and the money dried up.

Pretty much. Don't know if the team still exist in some form at all?

read "recently" (last 6-8 months, probably) that he was working with a Historic Group C team, don't remember which one, though

Drowned?

I see his name is on the preliminary entrylist for next years silverstone 24hrs with a Lotus Evora. I'm guessing Race Alliance is still together just not in the capacity that they were in the Aston Martin and Lotus days unfortunately. Liked those guys.

Whatever happened to...?

A lot happens in the Sportscar/GT world, and unless you read every single story on DSC/S365/Autosport/whatever under the sun, something will always slip under your radar - no matter how much of an anorak you might be.

What happened to that chassis? Where's that driver now? How has this circuit changed over X years? If you don't know, chances are, someone on this forum will.

I thought I'd start a thread where we could help each other out a bit, and help plug gaps in each other's knowledge.

Okay - here's mine....whatever happened to White Lightning? Their Porsches seemed to be ever-presents at Le Mans and in the ALMS, and then all of a sudden - they just vanished. What's the story there?

Petersen White Lightening went to Ferrari after the Porsches I believe, with a 430, but Petersen (first name forgotten), who was the funding behind it, went to do rally raid stuff himself instead.

Good thread though, hope there are some others. My turn, what happened to Freisinger?

I know a lot of these will end with "went bankrupt" though.

Yup, they switched to Ferrari in 2007.
If I recall correctly, White Lightning's Dale White was involved in the Drayson Racing ALMS effort after that.

We had a thread like this a while back:
http://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=144370

I still wonder what happened with Luis Diaz. Even if people didn't feel he was fast enough to be the lead driver, I would have thought someone would be snagging him for the enduros.

The most beautiful of Saleen liveries. The car was at Daytona Historic 24hrs but yes the question remains-what happened to the team itself?
