American team set for 2010 F1 debut
An American team is being built to compete in Formula One as of 2010. The project is currently dubbed 'USF1' and lead by Anderson, a former Ligier designer, and Windsor, formerly team manager at Williams F1, motorsport-total has learned.
It appears that initial talks took place as early as the most recent Canadian Grand Prix, where some USF1 people were reportedly talking to Honda representatives. Their contact did however quickly break off.
While no official team entry has been filed yet, nor is there an official statement, the project already has a website at www.usf1.com which currently only holds a logo.
One of the leading men, Anderson also partly owns Wind Shear Inc. full scale, 180mph rolling road wind tunnel in North Carolina which has been used by F1 and NASCAR teams. This could then be used for the team to build its own team, while being able to buy an engine and gearbox for 6.5m Euro.
