Formula One Team will have Link to SF

It's a tenuous link for sure, but Vijay Mallya will purchase the Spyker F1 team.

His links to the Bay Area include a home in Sausalito, ownership of the Mendocino Brewing Co., and a marvelous car collection stored in a Sausalito warehouse.

Malcolm, who manages the collection, has been very kind to give me a personal tour of the collection twice in the past. The collection is not open to the public. However, you might see one or more of the cars on display next weekend at a car show in downtown Sausalito.

You can read all about Mallya in this 2003 article by Dan Frost for the SF Chronicle. It's very well written, and I recommend you read it if you're interested to find out what this Indian billionaire is like.
