You missed your chance to own a piece of USF1 history

0

The gavel has fallen on the auction to sell off USF1’s remaining assets as part of the effort to pay off the failed teams’ creditors.

The big-ticket item? A mock-up of the never-seen chassis, in carbon fiber. Price? $7,850.

All totaled, the auction raised $1.4 million. I’m assuming that hasn’t settled all the team’s outstanding bills.

Hey, did you see that? I got the word “outstanding” into a post on USF1. That should have earned me a USF1 door knob or something.

Here’s a list, of sorts, of the items:

Among the 427 lots – including bins, computers, tools, a vacuum cleaner, a forklift, a barbeque, a wheel rim and an unopened bottle of champagne – was a carbon fibre mock-up of the unraced chassis, which sold for $7,850.

Perhaps this is the place to point out that this news is a reminder not to get overly excited about the new U.S. team efforts, I guess.
