Can hardly wait for Bernice's comment on this!

The last thing Bernie wants is the guys he has milked for billions for years and years getting together to compare notes.

Really...can hardly wait for the BE spin on this one hehe.

I don't know about that Rob. They just may be in a position to give Bernie a headache in lieu of vica versa.

As a commitee they should all have a theory on costs to their respective circuits and should be in a position to slow down the Bernie Eccleston payroll monopoly.

this is clearly a BE project. FOTA was his project so was GPDA. The end game is unite the circuits under a single umbrella tying them to F1 and no one else (without prior permission) and breaking up the association later on factions so they can control all circuits and bring peace among different "factions".
BTW watch End Game Blue print for global enslavement great documentary on youtube!

@Buck

Mr.E is partially behind it, he's got his friend Ron Walker to set it up as a way to apply pressure on the FIA.

"The association will be used to promote F1 and support Bernie."

@rob01

Yes.
Which I believe is still the hybrid engine idea, and if FOPA are given a seat on the F1 commission, that'll work in Bernie's favour.

But I suspect there's quite a way to go still, and not everyone has shown their hand yet.

How so Caroline. Bernie is bleeding the circuits dry.

Take Australia for example from where Ron Walker emanates.

We pay exhorbitant fees and for what over a fiscal period.

The anylysts can quote figures to say Melbourne and Victoria benefit in a monetary manner or is it bookwork gone wrong.

Chris Sylt has the same view as you but the overall package of the commission as a whole surely will be a bargaining power for and against B.E.

@CommodoreS

How so? (?)

Maybe because FOPA have said so.

Ron Walker and Bernie share (atm) the same vision for the future, that's why Bernie has encouraged (for now), the formation of FOPA.

Bernie needs for the circuits to say that the current regs are killing ticket sales. And that the new engine formula will further reduce ticket sales. Bernie wants help against FIA. FIA wants bigger slice of pie. All this new found friendship involves the next Concorde.
