Hello!
Achilleas is one of a possible buyer of the Honda F1 team. He also tried to buy Toro Rosso in the last months. He doesn't want to lead the team but only wants to represent his buissniss.
Has he ever been in motorsport?

And what about racing teams from Greece?
There was the Greece A1 GP team in the 2006/07 season with Stathis Basios as seatholder and Dimitris Nafpliotis as team principal. Any infos about these guys?
Then we have Tokmakidis Motorsport, who was racing in the late 90s in the German F3 and Italian F3. Details of this team? Who is behind of that team? Is it still existing? Where?
Giorgio Aposkitis was listed up in an event of the British F3 season in 1977 with an own team and a Lola Toyota. Details?
And Alexandros Magaritis was competing with a own team in the F3 Masters in 2004. More details?

Were there more Greece racing teams in Formula racing?
There was a Greece Formula 3 in the 90s (1991-2001???). Were there no Greece racing teams?

Thank you!

Nicolas Embiricos had a private ERA in the 1930s in a fetching grey colour, he must have been one of the first entrants in motor racing from the cradle of Western civilization...

Oh yes, it was the 1930 British GP I think.

He has also a cousin who raced in Grand Prix and Voiturette (André "Andy" Embiricos)
