Thursday Lot #3000

Among the scheduled to roll across the block at the Barrett-Jackson in Las Vegas is a red-white-and-blue bedecked 2012 Ford Mustang GT500 Shelby “Super Snake.” The car comes with some mileage on its odometer as well as the signatures of hundreds of people who support its mission — and also with the hopes of the dozens more who will benefit from that mission — the Wounded Warriors Family Support charity.

The scene was a familiar one, the sale of a special collector car at Barrett-Jackson with all proceeds going to charity. Also familiar was the smiling face of Roger Frank, a longtime Barrett-Jackson regular who was on the podium at last year’s Las Vegas to help sell off his all original 1955 Chevrolet 210 to benefit the Barrett-Jackson Cancer Research Fund at TGen, in memory of Russ and Brian Jackson, and Festival of Hope in Scottsbluff, Nebr., Frank’s hometown.

But among those cheering the charity auction at Vegas, only a few knew just how special this sale really was. While raising funds for cancer research through the sale of his ’55 Chevy, Frank was also battling his own cancer demons. Yet there he was, grinning and having a great time as once again, he gave his all to help others.

Back in June it was first reported that F1 Group co-owner CVC Capital was interested in bidding for IMG, the long established sports management and media group.

Last week more details emerged, with the UK’s Sky TV linking CVC to a consortium that includes Bahrain’s Mumtalakat (a shareholder in McLaren) and the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (backer of the country’s Grand Prix). They are reportedly aiming for a 60/20/20 ownership split.
