A1 Grand Prix are aiming to secure their financial future by moving to list themselves and allow the public to buy shares.
The inaugural "World Cup of Motorsport" was threatened midway through the season through lack of funding, however an internal restructuring allowed the campaign to be complete.
Now, organisers have enlisted London financial institution Nomura to work towards making A1 Holdings Ltd a public company.
RAB Capital plc, a leading investment manager listed in London, will act as lead investor along with other financial institutions, and has committed sufficient capital to complement the debt financing arranged by Nomura.
A1 Grand Prix say the aim of this public listing is so they can commit to a long-term future with sponsors, suppliers, promoters and national A1 teams.
"Since the launch of A1 GP in March 2004, the company has gone from strength to strength," said A1 GP deputy chairman and co-founder, Tony Teixeira. "I am delighted that after a strong first season, A1 Grand Prix has attracted the support of high profile investors committed to progressing the series to the next level.
"In A1 Grand Prix, we have a unique and innovative product, a fact which has been recognised by RAB Capital plc and Nomura. I would like to thank all parties involved and look forward to a bright future for A1 Grand Prix, supported by these established City institutions."
