Question Briggs team sold?

Latest rumour is that Briggs Ford team has been sold to 888 motorsport.


I believe in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and that HRT/KMR/TB are all seperate teams.

Re: Briggs team sold?

Isn't that the number the Prancing Horse Ferrari/Budweiser team were going to use?

Re: Briggs team sold?

Nope, it's definately 888. Is that the sponsors of that Subaru team in rally? Somehow those digits remind me of those guys.

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

888 raced Vauxhalls in the BTCC and was (dunno if it still is now) part owned by ex-F1 racer Derek Warwick.
888 was one of the companies that stuck their hands up to buy HRT (though it was never really going anywhere but Skaife).

Re: Briggs team sold?

Given the Vauxhall/GM link I wonder whether they would switch to Holdens...or whether they'd be Prodrive like (Subaru, Ford, Honda in F1, Ferrari in GT)

"We now have exactly the same situation as we had at the start of the race, only exactly the opposite"

Now that you mentioned 555, I think they were the rally team. Thanks for that. I knew that there was another triple digit team. I just didn't know if it was them or someone else.
