I am happy to share that the team ownerships are once again all sold out.

It's nice to see a full team as well:

Do you think the sponsor can tell us the story behind the names of these drivers?

Francisco "Frank" Marrero is the main sponsor I think?

Not all of the team names are connected with the team sponsor. Some are Kickstarters who sponsored a driver and elected to be on the 'red' team.

I will contact Francisco and invite him to come here and share any details with us. While I am at it, I will invite the other drivers to share some details as well. Good idea, David.

Hi, people! First of all, I want to say that I am very proud to be part of this project! I am Francisco and well, Adrian, Robert and Fabius are my all time gaming friends ( for more than 20 years ) and I wanted to have a present for them having them inmortalized in a GMT game! As for the team name, the red fury is the nickname our national soccer team has and the colours of the team are from the Spanish flag colours. About the sword, well, I thought about a strong symbol. Our team has no fear and we will win all the races, LOL! And if you see the track named Saint Adriana, this is the name of my lovely girlfriend, a great birthday present for her. I hope this game can be totally funded, I love racing games and I think this one will be the best of all. I want to say hello to the other racers that completed the team. I don't know if you chose red fury or if it was only luck, but I can promise you are in the winner team!

Thanks for sharing Francisco! Look forward to Spain dominating the ashphalt. Should be an exciting season of stock car racing!

Dan Pattison is my brother. During his late teens and 20's, he pit crewed weekends for a Formula Ford team and went through driver training at Summit Point. I don't think he was ever in a race per se, but the other drivers did let him take their expensive toys(i.e. Lotuses and Ferraris) for a spin around the tracks in places like Summit Point and Watkin's Glen. Although he doesn't crew now, he still enjoys racing as a fan.

Since his birthday is in August around the time that this game ships, I thought it might be cool to put his name up in lights. I am sure it will go well on the shelf next to the race memorabilia in the extra garage with a lift that he built to house his Porsche 924 and his Corvette.

On another note, there were a group of Pattisons that fled Scotland to Spain, so there is a little bit of a family connection to the Spanish Team.
