They moved it back due to teams expressing an interest quite late in the game, and the ones already entered agreed it'd give them more time to train and get funds ready

Safran have released a drawing of their new IMOCA, which will be being built from the same plug as Banque Pop

They now own the Juan K black and white boat, they're letting ex-Virbac Paprec and I think they've sold the Farr, so only the 1, don't quote me on that though

Both the Farr and Ex-VP3 are out of the shed with the Hugo Boss guys. Pictures soon to follow apparently.

No way does Maserati measure in as a 70 now.

Wonder if there's any hope Soldini will get a crew togethor for a go at it this time round?

He seems to have given Maserati good value for their sponsorship thus far

 

Maserati owner Fiat won't play ball in a Volvo owned event. No chance. Only option for Soldini is to find another title sponsor...chances are slim in Italy at the moment 

I don't see why not- Dong Feng make cars/trucks and are going for it.

I feel for Giovani, he's put together a great campaign, and I think it's pretty clear the Volvo is where he wants to end up.

Dongfeng are owned by Volvo, so it's more in their interests that it would be for Fiat/Maserati to join up
