Stoddart to Champ Car?

There are rumours coming out of Holland that former Minardi team owner Paul Stoddart is joining forces with his former sponsor Harry Muermans to run a Champ Car team. Muermans was in Toronto last weekend to check out the scene. We were unable to get through to Stoddart to check the story but what has been clear in recent months is that the Australian has been missing his involvement with F1.

The more new teams the better. I read somewhere that there were some Joe Gibbs racing people in a champ car paddock at some race. Stoddart would most likely hire some F1 refugees to drive his cars so that would increase the talent level in champ car. :w00t

Exactly. Some new infusion of money, some new ideas for progess, fresh faces to give the series a new facade.:nod

I really miss the CART of the 80's when peeps like Emo Fitti, Mario & Michael, Rahal, the Unser family, etc. all were currently racing. Remember when Honda first came on the scene (and Rahal couldn't make the Indy 500 'cause they sux'd!)? Or when Danny Sullivan was racing the Porsche? A great diversity of manufactors, drivers, etc.
