Did everybody catch this nice story on Fan Force United at Open-Wheels.com?
that's a terrific writer, right there!
And then there was the 500. Itís still hard to believe that the Fan Force United team was able to be a part of it. As of May 1st, our plan for the month of May was to run Armaan Ebrahim and Emerson Newton-John in the Freedom 100, and to join the masses in watching the Indy 500 from the stands. The Indianapolis 500 was certainly on the radar screen, as it is the goal on which sights are set, but not for this year. My what a dramatic turn in the teamís fortune. A conversation that led to a phone call, which led to an email and another phone call, which ultimately led to the little Fan Force United team making the big leap to the big cars to prepare and run a car for the legendary Jean Alesi, forever changing the complexion of this racing team and its principals. Things can never again be the same. The Indianapolis 500 has been tasted. Itís glory has been sampled. Indy has now entered the metaphorical bloodstream of the Fan Force United team, and once Indy is in the blood, it creates a condition that can never be reversed Ė not that we would have it any other way.
