Super Aguri F1 eBay sale goes off track

The landmark sale of
Super Aguri’s assets on
eBay may not go ahead as
BDO
continues last-minute efforts to secure a buyer.

The move to sell the collapsed Formula 1 team’s assets online at the end of
the month is thought to be a first for the UK insolvency market, but it could be
scuppered if a buyer is found using conventional means.

Partners from BDO were appointed as liquidators earlier this month after
creditors cut their losses and decided to break up the company. Property and
other real estate cannot be sold via the internet, but assets including an F1
car are eligible for online disposal.

‘The [online] auction is scheduled to go ahead, but we are working hard to
complete a sale beforehand,’ a BDO spokesman said.
