Alex K has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
There is a word Rosenqvist has signed with Ganassi for next year, it would be the brightest young gun ICS had as Rookie for some years.
Unf Hartley got snatched by STR, he'd be great addition... but, Veach, Kaiser, Wickens, Harvey.... and possibilty of Pietro Fittipaldi turning up somewhere, is not a bad line up for rookie of the year honours.

A third car for Ganassi? That would be surprising.

Also, Rosenqvist seems well placed in Formula E.

Are there any other engines knocking around that are within IndyCar rules?
Apart form the Chevy and Honda, do the teams have any other choices?

Not as of yet, that's the bid restriction limiting Bump Day to a non-event. Neither Chevy or Honda want to lease an engine that won't race AND neither really wants to support more than 13 cars but the 33 number means someone has to. There have ALWAYS been third engine rumors floating around but nothing more than hey maybe they'd like a go at it. Part of the push for the common bodywork again was to not make a new engine manufacturer have to do an engine and bodykit deal. Sounds reasonable but I'm not sure how realistic a constraint that was to teams building an engine.

Rumors I've seen from Robin Miller, MP and others on Racer.com have included:

VW (Audi, Lambo, very occasionally Porsche but NO)
Cosworth (badged with a manufacturer)
Fiat (Alfa Romeo, Maserati but that's been a WHILE)
Toyota (think more hopeful Honda/Toyota battle)
Think a Chinese make or two have been bandied about but think that's wild speculation

Ford doesn't want to be in IndyCar.
The next project will be a DPI.
Would be nice if IndyCar would ran GT3 or DPI engines as that would solve the problem...
