Parts recycler buys HRT remaining assets
14 February, 2013
Assets of the failed HRT Formula 1 team have been bought by Teo Martin, a well-known automotive component recycler, has bought most of the valuable parts left over in the wake of the Spanish team’s demise.
A report in Spain’s AS newspaper claims that HRT’s rented headquarters in Madrid are “already dismantled, deserted and silent”.
Teo Martin has apparently bought the 2011 and 2012 single seaters, a show car, a truck, tools, machinery, furniture and other assets.
“In short, everything that can be recycled and sold that was still in HRT’s possession (has been sold),” read the AS newspaper report.
The sold assets did not include the 2012 engines, which have been returned to Cosworth, or the gearboxes, which were rented from Williams.
“The amount of the transaction is not known,” added AS. (GMM)
