Victus Restaurant in Harrogate, owned by 2009 World Champion Jenson Button, has closed less than one year after it opened its doors to the public.
The establishment, which opened with Button in attendance in September, was part-owned by the Formula 1 driver and manager Richard Goddard.
“It’s a huge shame Victus has found itself in this situation, especially when the reasons behind it are really a question of timing rather than anything else,” Goddard explained to Harrogate-News. “Unfortunately the business was launched in an economy which then continued to slide and just hasn’t stopped, with people simply not having the disposable income needed to spend in restaurants.”
Button has been spending his F1 summer break in the Philippines, where he was joined by girlfriend Jessica Michibata and took part in a triathlon.
