And I think mr. texeira was still talking recently that A1 wasn't dead...

Too bad it came to an end. I liked the concept and I thought the racing was good at times. I also liked that it visited places like New Zealand that F1 would never bother with.

As offers are initially wanted for the whole package, it's not totally dead - if someone buys the package they've got a ready "go racing" deal on their hands.

But I agree, the odds of someone taking such a punt and also running it as its own series are slim to say the least.

The forum will stay here, as a lesson of what could have been - but we may take the decision to lock it from further postings at some point in the future. And who knows, we may - at some point - open a new forum for a new world cup of motorsport (just one that's better run).

No doubt some dreamer will want to buy it, with an half arsed idea of starting yet another series in an overcrowed market place.

I think if we were back in 2004-2006 instead of now that might have been the case. But in this economic environment, I'd say the chances are slim.
