tl;dr: LMP2, 2015, £8M budget, from 250,000 they plan to raise via this initially in phase 1.

It looks to me like a better thought out Perrin with more clout.

The Brabham name is powerful and I've got my fingers crossed for them. It's not particularly new or innovative as an idea, even in racing.

Buried at the bottom of the page it seems they have Piers Phillips (ex-Strakka) as team manager. He just needs a team to manage.

Hopefully in the morning the racing world will pick this news up and get behind it. If the funding begins the implication is that more backers/partners could come on board.

Kinda crunch time. Go into crowd funding and see which of the
totally innovative, community immersing, crowd-funded and open-sourced
teams gets to race.

ISTM Perrinn has the engineering, and Brabham the name that'll bring in the funds.
Neither will make me as an open sourcer proud, I fear...

"It then plans to return to the ranks of a constructor in 2018 with an LMP1 design."

Have put in a few pennies but I won't hold out much hope of seeing any result. I may have missed it (didn't listen to the show), but why is the goal 250k?

These two projects would seem perfect to work together.

I agree, I bet collaboration failed because both see themselves as the name-giving, project-driving entity.

I didn't donate to Perrin because, with the best will in the world, I just couldn't see it working. I can't have been the only one.

I have higher hopes for this.

I'll stick my neck out and say there's no way Project Brabham can get the car running on crowd funding alone. That's surely not the ambition. They need backers to come in once it gains momentum. When that time comes it will be interesting to see how they offset that against the team's open-source identity.

Ultimately I just want to see more cars on the WEC grid. Hence:

By the way, did anyone else have trouble using PayPal? Wasn't a great start, being told that they were unable to receive PayPal monies.

I'm with Simmi here in wanting to see more on track (and thus I also spent a night at the pub for not being at the pub).

Rodger: I paypal'd just fine.

Stretch Goals

When we pass the initial target we can start to progress the next phases without requiring additional investment straight away. When we reach a total of:

· £500,000 we will be able to start building and populate the three, more complex cloud-based experiences straight away, and start to assemble the back-office of the team

· £2.5m we can source our factory and buy our first car

· £8m you can become a piece of racing history – we would be the first ever community-sponsored motor racing team in an FIA discipline, with a team in next year’s WEC
They can't be seriously intending to get all of that from crowd founding alone.
