Brian Herta return to CART for 2003?

Brian Herta is rumored to be returning to CART next year. The rumor source said that there is an 80% chance of his return.

I've heard his name being bounced around alot lately, too. I've always liked Herta, and obviously hope that things work out for him in his quest for a ChampCar ride. And if they do, I'm going to place my bets early on who wins Laguna!

I've heard that it may be with Wayne Thomas' new team -- they are buds.

Speaking of Wayne Thomas and buds, can't somebody persuade Kevin Jeanette to start a Champ Car team? He could fund it with the money he finds behind the seats of his cars.

Wasn't he also linked to Gurney's abandoned attempt at a GP team for 2003?

Bryan "Will Drive For Anybody" Herta -- team him up with Memo "I'll Work For Free and Sleep On Your Sofa" Gidley and what a team! A couple of hard workers who will work for nothing. Who could ask for anything more?

I guess its good to have increased car count, but there are other guys id rather have than Take 2 of guys who werent cutting it. I was amazed at how uncompetitive Herta was this year, even against his Panoz teammates

One advantage to starting your own team is that you can hire your friends. And who knows, perhaps Herta is a partner in the team? (I have no idea if he is or not, but it's at least possible.)

I like Herta. He's a nice guy and a good driver so I hope he returns next year. CART needs the presence of a couple of Yanks anyway.

Well, somebody get over there and convince Beeker, I mean Gunnar that he wants to drive an open wheel car! (He could do it. He's very fast.) [But he does look like Beaker. Sounds like him too.]

Bryan and Gunnar are good drivers and nice guys, but there are a lot of other yanks and canuks in the ladder systems and touring/GT cars who just aren't getting even a look from CART teams.

Seems like it's become a very closed family... All the new blood seems to be pay.

I'd honestly rather give the driver to one of the yanks who've proven their worth in Atlantic... Lot's of potential there, and these are guys that might stick with Cart for a few years until they win a championship or something.

Well, do you think then that people who want to start teams in CART should not be allowed to pick the drivers they want to hire? Should CART just assign them a driver from the list, so we have the right quota of each specific group that we favour and nobody else gets in from groups we don't think ought to be "grabbing all the seats" from the people on our favourites list?

Or maybe we should give them extra money for hiring off the quota list. I guess that'd make the guys on the quota list feel just as proud as if they had earned their drives.

Of course both of those solutions are nonsense. But if you want only certain people hired and not others, how else are you going to do it?
