Branson? Hmmm.... I'm not sure if he has any record of supporting sporting endeavour unless he is directly involved and, even if he was minded to join BA's crew, I suspect he might find the winches hard work.

He is also a very savvy business man and tends to sell his brands when they peak. If the British team were not seen as favourites to win the Louis Vitton, would he stick with them?

A British team really needs to be in place very quickly with a proven designer. If the project is still being sold to sponsors in 6 months time and the right people are not in place, we will be cannon fodder again!

Can't we give Dodi a posthumous apology from the Greek/SAS and get his old man to stump up in return.... Harrods is already British Racing Green (I know, unlucky seafaring colour, but commercials come first)

Presumably Branson will be backing the British Virgin Islands entry...

So, wh is there so little interest?
Down in good old Pompey, it seems to me the locals who got behind BAR are regretting it.
Much bickering about the council's involvement and what it is going to cost.
Either BAR is really bad at websites or they don't exactly have sponsors fighting over the rights?
