THE LATEST F8 NEWS FOR YOU
Our New Name Change
As most of you know, F1 Motorsports was built on a true love and passion for high end, exotic and rare cars and an admiration and respect for the people that own them. For more than 4 years, it has stood for the pursuit of perfection in automotive service and an example of how we feel the client-car-shop relationship should be. "F1 Motorsports" is not just a name but an image of what people expect from us as a shop and what us and our clients have built together piece by piece over the years. Lately that name has attracted the attention from none other than Formula One Racing. About 6 months ago we received what is called a "cease and desist" letter from their attorneys citing assumptions we are infringing on their copyright. Although our logo and name was not derived from Formula One Racing and we feel there is no resemblance to the logo, they suggest it's close enough that we should change it. After many conversations, we've agreed to their request and have established a deal that will satisfy both parties.
This visual name change will be effective immediately as of this posting and the integration of our new name both legally and in branding will be done in the upcoming months so please bear with us as we attempt to get used to not saying F1 Motorsports as we've said it thousands of times over the years.
Our new name will be "F8 SportsCars". The F will be carried over from the old logo but that's the only resemblance. As the majority of vehicles we service are sports cars, we feel it's a fitting moniker.
I want to personally assure you the name change, although legally necessary is only a stepping stone to build an even better, stronger company. I personally intend to use this opportunity to not only transfer the excellent image F1 Motorsports has acquired over the years but to expand and build F8 Sportscars into a business as awesome as the cars we service. Look forward to more programs and incentives for our clients, more racing sponsorships, track events and many other things. This is certainly not a negative for us but a step in the right direction as a company and I couldn't be more excited to rebrand with that in mind.
In the meantime, it's business as usual and I thank you for your patience as we go through this process. I look forward to seeing you around the next turn.
We really appreciate our customers here at F8 SportsCars. We would like to share some emails we got from some customer showing why we love them so much!
"Jeremy... just wanted to say “thank you“ for all the special attention you put forth on the Ferrari. Truly appreciated the TLC! I’m a true believer and will speak your praises. You have sincere passion for your work product, never lose it. I respect an artist when I see one. Thanks so much. Marc"
