US investors interested in Manor it seems:

The American says he would like 41-year-old Nascar star Dale Earnhardt Jr to lead the team if he was to purchase the outfit.

That appears unlikely to happen, but Hellmund did suggest he would look to keep current Manor driver Alexander Rossi in one of the seats. "He has the resume," he said of his fellow countryman.

So Dave Ryan in as Racing Director and they want Wurz as Team Principal, are they adequate replacements for Lowdon and Booth?

The stories about a possible American buy-out led by Tavo Hellmund just seem kind of unserious, like Tavo was being flippant and goofy (Earnhardt Jr. in F1 for example). So I'm bit baffled by skoop's claim. Hope he can give more info and/or a source at some point.

Great news that Manor are picking up new sponsor(s) to the sport! Dave Richards has been spotted in the paddock again, do we think he could be linked to a Manor buyout!?

Are you sure Manor F1 is building a new factory?

What I read is, that John Booth will set up a new team under the Manor banner to race in lower series. Maybe this is the new factory you´re referring to.
