The Blair Project is pleased to announce a new backer, Enrique Scalabroni.

Born in Argentina, Scalabroni came to Europe in 1982, and immediately set about finding his place in Formula 1 as a mechanic and car designer, and later went on to hold the roles of technical director and team principal.

He played a significant role in developing the 6 speed sequential gearbox with Williams in the mid-1980s, before helping to design the championship winning FW11 and FW11B which took the 1986 and 87 Formula 1 constructors’ championships.

Scalabroni then had tenures with Ferrari and Lotus, before helping to design and oversee the development of the 1992 Le Mans-winning Peugeot 905.

After a long career in Motor racing, Scalabroni has decided it’s time to give back.

“What Nile and his brother Blair are doing is something that the world of motorsports has been needing for a long time,” he said.

“I’ve had a long and successful career at the highest levels of motor racing, and now I feel it’s time for me to give something back to the grassroots. I will be giving it my full weight and backing”.
