Golfer Rory McIlroy, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Liverpool midfielder Trent Alexander-Arnold have decided to invest in the Alpine Racing Formula 1 team.
These well-known people in Anglo-Saxon sports have joined the Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds, Rob McElhenney and Michael B. Jordan who have invested in June 200 million in exchange for 24% of the French capital based on Enstone. United Kingdom.
“These are world-class investors, athletes, artists and entrepreneurs committed to powering the Alpine F1 team,” said Alec Scheiner, co-creating partner of Otro Capital.
Mahomes’ Chiefs teammate Travis Kelce, former world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua and former Manchester United footballer Juan Mata are also among the investors brought together by Otro Capital.
With five Grand Prix left to finish the season, Alpine, the F1 showcase of its French parent company Renault, occupies sixth position in the world constructors’ championship, with 90 points.
In June, during the first announcement about this “star” investment, Renault specified that the financial operation referred only to the activities based in Enstone, thus excluding the engine department located in Viry-Chatillon, in the Paris region, entirely owned by the French manufacturer. .
