Campos Grand Prix (no HRT logo yet)
The Campos Meta team has officially changes its name to HRT – Hispania Racing Team.
It’s a pretty bad name, let’s be honest. Anyone who follows the Australian V8 Championship will know of the Holden Racing Team, which happens to be a support race at the Australian Grand Prix. And if you’re not following motorsport, you’ll know of HRT as Hormone Replacement Therapy. Very nice move from Carabante and Kolles.
Their website has now changed into a holding page, which means it should be back up when it is changed to look like Hispania Racing (I’m not using the HRT name yet!)
The main problem for the team is that they have completely missed the testing season. According to Adam Cooper, their car will be officially presented tomorrow, only 8 days before practice sessions begin for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
