GPWC Governing Principals, What's your view?
I thought this may be an interesting discussion.
The fact that we have a push for restricted testing, other cost controls that TOIT won’t adhere to, this list of principals may assist us in negotiating a better deal for whichever group the team decides to align with.
Links to the principals as laid out in the Pitpass.com story are belowhttp://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpass_news_item.php?fes_art_id=23367http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpass_news_item.php?fes_art_id=23368
My initial thoughts…
There isn't anything that I can say causes me great concern. The items regarding cost controls are very positive. Also, the point that promotes support for smaller, independent teams is also positive.
One point regarding the aim to provide the fastest lap times of any sport is a little dangerous. I'm not sure that this is necessary.
I do like to the point of the driver being the main the differentiating factor.
Some of the general technology points are also linked to costs.
Is this a better deal for independents like Minardi? I think it’s a good start.
In terms of Minardi's best interests and the sport itself, what do you guys think?
