BAR and Acer
THE Taiwanese computer company Acer has concluded a deal to be a corporate partner of British American Racing and an official supplier to the team. The company - Europe's fifth largest PC vendor - was previously involved in F1 with Prost having bought the rights to the Ferrari V10 engine which was used last year. The collapse of Prost left the door open for Acer to move elsewhere and BAR was quickest to react.
