All they need to do is arrive at free practice to get their annual windfall. I'm open to be corrected on that.

Technically you can only score a single point if the race gets cancelled before reaching 75% distance, in which case you'd score half the points of the double points nonsense - ie 10th place worth of 2p becomes 1p as usual

Anyway I don't really care enough to know what's happening in that circus

So .... a week before the race they announce they didn't raise enough and disappear, splitting the money between themselves?

The Brabham one is right on the brink now - just a couple of grand away. I'm really interested to see what happens once they hit 100%.

An announcement? Or immediately resetting and asking for more? I hope Brabs has been doing some work behind the scenes as the project just won't get there on fan power alone.

First phase of £250,000 completed for Brabham in 47 days.

Just £7,750,000 to go...

There is no 'return' on that 'investment' - it is basically an asset sale. Fine if you fancy a piece of F1 merchandise but it is NOT giving anyone a real world stake in anything.

WolfsburgRS should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I was late to the party on this, but just donated. (went with name on the car option)

Ultimately I did so because I don't have any 'fan' investment in any LMP2 team, and it'll be nice to have someone to cheer for in the WEC. David always seemed to be a nice guy at ALMS fan sessions and I'd like to see this succeed.

I'm also just enough of a nerd about it but I think it's cool that even if I've never been to Le Mans, and even if the team doesn't do well, that I helped put a car there in some way, shape or form and that my name is on that car. I prefer to see the good in a venture like this. Could they just run away with the money? Sure, but that's not the vibe I get and not what I choose to believe.

I got a donator email last night which answered my question about where the next set of funds are coming from:

Quote:
Our next target is £500,000 – at which point we can start to assemble the back-office Brabham team and populate the Brabham-Digital platforms with content. Much of this money will be raised through private partnerships and sponsorship, but the closer to the target we can get at this stage the quicker we can get out on the track.
I'm guessing that this phase shouldn't take too long? There had to be some money and sponsorship prospects floating around for them to have set up the project in the first place.

The first 250k was "proof of concept" if you will.

Likely. I'm guessing there were a few parties that would only shell out if a certain dollar amount was achieved.

It's been all quiet on the Brabham front for a little while. Anybody here know what's going on with them currently?
