Stefan GP Send F1 Equipment to Bahrain

Serbian team Stefan GP seems to have not given up hope in making the 2010 Formula One roster after all. After managing to close a deal with former F1 team Panasonic Toyota to “receive technical supports” for a potential 2010 operation, Stefan GP now packed their bags and shipped a 40 foot container of equipment to Bahrain.

As you all know, Bahrain will host this year's season opener in Formula One, and the Serbian outfit plans to be there just in case. In case of what? Well, as recent reports have already made it obvious, not all teams are prepared to make the step to Formula One next season.

Stefan Grand Prix writes history! SGP becomes the first team in F1 history who did send a 40 foot container full of equipment to the race in Bahrain without having entry for 2010 season!” said the latest statement from Stefan GP.

With US F1 and Campos Grand Prix having a hard time securing the funds for their maiden F1 campaign, Stefan GP can only hope some kind of vacancy will eventually be created prior to the Bahrain race. According to their statement, their bringing the equipment to Bahrain suggests “how serious (we) are when they say that we are pushing to ... race.”

Last week, the Serbian organization announced that they have reached an official agreement with Toyota for the purchase of their 2010 car. The Toyota TF110 had already been developed by the Cologne designers prior to the Japanese manufacturer's announcing their decision to quit the sport, so they eventually decided to sell it for a reasonable price, alongside the complete with engine and gearbox.

Anyway we are proud of us, and on our power of will, so we will keep going and show some new people belong in F1,” added the optimistic media statement from Stefan GP.
