Origins

Rumbly Raptor Racing was created in June 2011 for the first season of the F1Fanatic Forza Motorsport 3 Championship. The team has become famous for its Really Rubbish Racing: Rumble Raptor Racing Race Reviews [RRRRRRRR]. Such alliteration is so mind blowingly complex that it took RumblyLizard 4 days to come up with the name.

Sponsorship

Funded personally by RumblyLizard, the team was bought in June 2011 after early promise in testing. It was originally bought by Paul Smith, who, for the first 8 races used the team to promote their fashion brand. However, after RumblyLizard won two races in a row, Paul Smith made a decision to sell space on the car to new sponsors while brand exposure was high. Accordingly, from race 9 in the championship, Bose became the new title sponsor of Rumbly Raptor Racing along with a new livery featuring a real raptor*. Additionally, Rumbly Raptor Racing gained new technical working partners; Firestone, Champion and Mobil 1. Rumbly Raptor Racing became the first racing team to have a stylised 'number 1' for the Mobil 1 logo. Paul Smith branding still exists on the car, but this is subliminal so don't buy Paul Smith merchandise (honest).

*This is not a real raptor. They only exist in Jurassic Park

Name Dispute
