Tauranac spotted at Asiatech
RON TAURANAC is in his late seventies but he retains a keen interest in motor racing and the former Brabham F1 designer has been quietly involved for some years as a consultant to the Honda Motor Company. It is therefore very interesting that Ron turned up the other day at the Asiatech UK factory in Didcot to have a look at what Enrique Scalabroni and his team of engineers are doing in the old Williams headquarters.
There are rumors that Asiatech is looking at buying into a Formula 1 team but our sources say that this is not likely to happen until 2004 at the earliest - despite the fact that at least one team could be acquired at the moment for a dollar because of the debts they are carrying.
