Hmmm Motor series sponsored by football clubs

I think this is complete madness, if you ask me, but supposedly there are talks of a new open-wheel racing series to be sponsored by … football clubs

Only if they let the footballers drive the cars.


Seriously I don't really see the point in it. It's just the marketing people trying to make more money.

I am a keen footie fan but think this is just a silly marketing-driven idea.
