A new initiative called PF1 will allow people to own and drive recent F1 cars in up to four events a year at venues such as Silverstone and Spa.
Created by Paul Osborn and Jonathan Kaiser, co-owners of Cars International, PF1 has already acquired a fleet of recent-model Jordans, Jaguars and Super Aguris for the new project and ran Martin Brundle in one of the Jaguars at Silverstone recently.
“The idea is that we’re going to provide motorsport enthusiasts with the opportunity to own and run a late-model F1 car, without any of the associated problems,” said Osborn. “A lot of our customers are people who buy Lamborghini and Ferrari road cars, and they often express the desire to have a go in a race car.”
The cars are being equipped with the 2006-model Cosworth TJ engine, which will deliver up to 875bhp. The cost of purchasing a post-2000 F1 car starts from £300,000.
