HRT Sells Up

Formula One World Championship

HRT looks all but dead and buried as the former team sold its remaining assets during the week.

The team which ran from 2010-2012 and was unable to secure a buyer for this year has sold four of its cars to a Spanish used racing parts company as well as one of its cars to Pirelli. The company purchased three 2012 cars, a 2011 car as well as the teams garage equipment and a scale model of the 2012 car.

Pirelli announced that it planned to show the HRT at promotional events and it would be painted in the teams black and yellow colours.

An attempted buyout announced last month by American and Canadian investors now looks extremely unlikely and HRT looks set to fall into the Formula 1 wilderness forever.
