F1 » Villeneuve/Durango still chasing F1 entry – possibly via NASCAR...


You just can't keep some people down, so they say, and that certainly applies to the indefatigable Villeneuve Racing/Durango F1 bid - even if it may now have to go via NASCAR first...

I see there are some decent 21st century F1 cars for sale at the moment.... perhaps I should purchase one and see if I can bluff my way into F1 :P

Represent Jersey on the F1 side :)

Then once the team is up and running, I convince Bernie to host an F1 race in Jersey so we can have another Jersey Grand Prix!

Why doesn't he join forces with Stefan GP, Anderson & Windy and buy HRT and have the most shambolic outfit in F1 history :p

He spent to long picking up the big bucks at BAR racing.

james, as you are speaking of jersey (i presume that you live there), brings to mind a hill climb machine which was a kart, fitted with a 3.5 v8 rover engine. was it tony marsh who pedalled it?

I do indeed!

And yes that was him! We have had many bonkers machines on the hill climb events. A Skoda with a V8... everyone laughs when the comentator says Skoda because all you hear is the roar of it :)

However I do karting over here (and in UK).

I say Jersey GP because it was a non championship GP back in the 40's & 50's... Prince Bira, Fango etc use to race here... the roads are still the same, would be such a laugh to see a current F1 car take to that circuit now!

memories! yes there were a couple of v8 skodas used in saloon racing. i think that alec poole raced one. i wonder if the one in jersey is one of the original racers. and for the uninformed, these were the rear engined 110s

An astute move by M. Newvillage et al. NASCAR provides a clear path to F1 success. Methinks these gentlemen have overindulged in halucinogenic fungi prior to this planning session.
