Hispania gets a new Spanish owner

The Hispania team has a new majority shareholder in the form of investment group Thesan Capital.

The new owners plan to emphasise the team’s Spanish background and eventually move it to a new base in Spain.

The team said today: “The Spanish investment group will lead the development of Hispania Racing in the upcoming years, maintaining the current team and directors, which is one of the main assets of the company, and will try to develop and search for opportunities to optimize and improve the performance of the team in the upcoming seasons, alongside progressively making the team more Spanish and definitively settling the team in Spain.

“The Thesan Capital team, who consider the acquisition of Hispania Racing as an opportunity to enter a sector with great prospects of growing, will work with the aim of strengthening the strategic management of the group.”

    The rumor I heard (Diario AS) says HRT has been bought by Nomura, a Japanese financial group for 50-70 million last friday. Either way, it sounds like the current managment team will stay, and perhaps HRT will have solid long term financial support.
