SEPTEMBER 2, 1996
THE court case between Forti and its sponsor Shannon has now ended with the Italian judge deciding that Shannon does own 51% of the racing team. This will, inevitably, mean that team founder Guido Forti will be dumped.
Such a step would probably lead to the departure of a number of the Forti crew, leaving Shannon with not a great deal to show for its money.
The future of technical director George Ryton remains to be seen, although we have heard rumors suggesting that the Englishman is already on his way back to a job at Ferrari.
