  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday.

    The 24 of Nurburgring is where that one picked up her patina...

    If this happens, and while we're preceding step by step we still have a long road to travel, that's where this adventure may begin.

    Major Sponsors please get in touch.

    :)

    Jim, would a race version of the P4/5 be a conversion, or be built on a whole new chassis?

    We still need a big sponsor but I'm hopeful as I think Ferrari P 4/5 Competizione would get a lot of exposure for a sponsor.

    We're hoping to begin at the 24 of Nürburgring next year.

    Are you gearing towards any type of sponsor, or just basically anyone with the cash?

    We're looking for one major sponsor. That race gets 250k spectators and a lot of TV. In addition we could do other races and when her racing days are over we'd keep her in that livery and she'd go to a lot of events. There'd be a lot exposure and it's not going to cost Crazy money.

    This effort would be like something NART would have done in the Day.

    We will set up a Race Team which will build and race the car. We will of course use specialists for various components.

    Wishing you the best as this is how I fondly imagine the glory years of racing before my time.... privateers, autos of beauty, purpose, and men with gumption. Godspeed.

    I've been trying to catch up since I realised there was a P4/5 thread on here... it's quite long (119 pages so far!) but a pretty good read! ;) Not even close to getting through it all yet... we need a 'highlights' page. :p :eek:

    I share sentiments - good luck Jim!! :D

    All the best,
    Andrew.
