From what I understood the crowd funding part was meant to get it going, not sustain it.

It was also meant to get you something. From membership of a club type website, to access to driver or car development programmes, an opportunity to suggest or by democracy (on the Internet ) chose certain paths the team would take, to time with personal driver coaching if you contributed enough.

Which is why I asked if anyone was a member/contributed as I wasn't in a position to comment if they were starting to provide any of that.

Disappointing none of that is coming yet...

A tour of the yacht would be a good idea.

Just to make sure one thing is communicated properly: They DID set up a member site with a (joke of a) forum. So there's your members only private access. The forum contains a message from the man from like mid august and since then brabham media has been posting once every other month (that includes christmas wishes).

And there's the man's view on what they've achieved (the brabs Q&A, dec 2015 version). I would quote it here for laughs and giggles, but all content on brabham digital com is (c) brabham global ltd and can only be shared with explicit permission from brabham. Which I haven't asked for. Let's summarize as "all is well and we have delivered and are working on great prospects for you and us"

I'd classify as the typical loss of contact to reality someone experiences who swims too long in the marketing waters.

Yes, very frustrating.

Although there will be an extra source of income from the libel actions against the stolen money allegations

Tickets for that cost 5 dollars though. 25 for VIP package that includes plastic cup of lukewarm beer and black&white photo of the said yacht.

And this is all assuming you actually traveled to the location at your own expense.

I contributed £25 to Project Brabham.

It's crowd funding, at the end of the day you will never see your money again and may get nothing back from it. It's a risk, I accept that.

However, what I'm very disappointed is the almost non-existent communication. Surely, say, a monthly email from them about the progress or lack of wouldn't be too much? There's a few bits and bobs on the website and in the members' forum but I really don't see the community being engaged at this point.

Just noticed it's been over half a year since the latest news on the site (Sergio Rinland joining as technical advisor).

Actually it's winter now in the land of Oz. But technically even their winter is everlasting summer so it doesn't really matter either way I guess.

The recorded mileage of the yacht must be pretty impressive by now.

This! I also contributed the same, they have or are gaining momentum for a bit of a PR disaster ? Not great to have such bad press associated with the Brabham name
