USF1 auctions off racing - and non-racing - items
We don’t have a lot of use for it seeing as we’re not in the business of making full-fledged Formula One cars, but in terms of owning a piece of history by having parts of the F1 team that never was - yes, that’s you, USF1 - then the people who attended the USF1 auction last week probably walked away with some pretty humdingers while others probably overpaid for some run-of-the-mill items too.
Take this F1 body shell for example. Apparently, it went for just $8,000, which is pretty much a bargain for collectors of, uhm, race car body parts. Other items were also auctioned, including a $400 printer which, miraculously, sold for $700. In addition to the overpriced printer, there were also handtrucks, a refrigerator, trash cans, cabinets, desktop computer equipment and laptops, and dualing blue and green couches.
Just goes to show you how USF1 is desperate to recoup at least parts of the money they burned through all of this.
