We have a thread about the ideal F1 team, and my question is, how would you name it?

First, there are some really cool names from the history of F1, like Shadow, Arrows, Wolf, Onyx, Toleman (sounds like some local ruler from the middle age), or Rhodesian F1 team Gunstone.

My pick would be "Aurora Borealis", "Volcano" or "Laguna". But I think my fellow forum members would come up with even cooler names.

We need a villain one, called Wolfenstein or something!

We need one called Rotam Celer (Fast Wheels).

Hell on Wheels F1 - a.k.a How F1?

Aurora F1 sounds like an awesome name though from the OP!

Renegade is a name I like. Flash too (uhm).

I've always liked names that you can shoehorn into dubious puns too... something like Eternity could be pushed into a lot of fun scenarios (it took an Eternity to pass!)

Rattie Racing is my fantasy team.

('cos fancy rats are such beautiful loving intelligent companions, and they make great engineers , plus they ride with you and jump onto anyone trying to overtake you and distract them with kisses, and... )
...hmmm, might stop there.

Have fun :)

Best name is my team name POWER Team Racing.

Originally it was POWER Studios Advertising & Design but the logo was so good I wanted to use it for paintball and then came up with a killer acronym specific to paintball which is Performance Optimized Weapon Enhancement Research. Since then, I utilize POWER for anything I do, be it business or leisure.

Eminem's portions on Jay-Z's song by that name are some of the greatest lyrics ever put to vinyl.
Poor Camel Joe… Didn't know what he was getting into there. :lol:

Most of the videogames offered in the '90s and beyond featured fictional names, mostly to avoid copyright violations. Frankly, I found these whimsical names silly, and still do.

I've always wanted to name a race horse "A Horse" so, going with a similar concept with the team, i'd call it Corsa Automobile Racing, or CAR for short.

So whenever commentators refer to the team it'll simply be " The Car".

Shame Motorsport Manager isn't multiplayer. I wonder whether Ratties or Squirrels are faster.

Have fun :)

I seem to remember a motorcycle race team (from Enfield?) with a very similar name


I would love to see an oriental entry by Sam Tim Wong with the car called the Hare 8O

Easy...mine would be:

Gentlemen, a short view back to the past. Thirty years ago, Niki Lauda told us: "Take a trained monkey, place him into the cockpit and he is able to drive the car." Thirty years later Sebastian told us: "I had to start my car like a computer. It's very complicated." And Nico Rosbeg said, err, he pressed during the race, I don't remember what race, the wrong button on the wheel. Question for you to both. Is formula 1 driving today too complicated with 20 and more buttons on the wheel, are you too much under effort, under pressure? What are your wishes for the future, concerning technical program, errrm, during the race? Less buttons, more? Or less and more comunication with your engineers F1 Team

First off, the boring answer: if I actually had an F1 team, I'd name it for the company or product that I was trying to promote. That's the point of having an F1 team.

Now, assuming that I'm instead a billionaire playboy who just wants to race for the heck of it, but - for whatever reason - doesn't want my name attached to the team...

Infinity Racing Limited, making every effort to get Infiniti to be our title sponsor.

I am aware of Eurytus only as a vague legend, a campfire tale shared by forum elders to demonstrate the power of the mods. I know only that he thought he was god, and that he was wrong.
