February 24th will be the day that the new USF1 team will announce it’s existence says Peter Windsor on Speed TV’s web site. Peter says he is surprised that it has not come out before this as they have been working on it for a long time.
It is a good sign, in the middle of a recession, that the support they have received has been very positive. Not, verbal accolades need to change into to cash and we’ll see if Peter and Ken can make that magic lead-to-gold spell work.
“the real announcement” about USF1’s plans could be made on February 24.
Windsor explained that since the rumours broke, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.
“Of course it’s not easy raising money in the recession,” he admitted. “Having said that, the recession is all about adapting to changing times and re-setting the boundaries.
“That is what we are going to with USF1 — and that is what the FIA are doing with the F1 rules.
“We know that we’re primarily in the entertainment business and so every aspect of USF1 will reflect that,” said Windsor.
