More so if Cosworth is involved and has cash, think they could start from zero and have an engine for 2020 if not late this season.
The new engine formula comes in, in 2021. So I would doubt Cosworth would want to design and develop an engine just for one season, then have to do it all over again to meet the new formula. Cosworth have got two years, in which to commit and design an engine.

Indy TV schedule announced this afternoon, 8 races on NBC: Indy GP, 500, Detroit, Road America, Mid-Ohio, Portland and Laguna Seca, remaining on NBCSN. Qualifying is still to be announced.

Robin's mailbag says next week for series sponsor announcement:
RM: The official title sponsor announcement will be Jan. 15 and all I’ve heard is that it’s an Asian company. But NTT Data certainly got a ton of exposure in that NBC promo last Sunday night, and a lot of people are assuming that’s the new sponsor.

Great news of a new title sponsor, regardless of who it turns out to be.

Having 8 races on NBC has got to be a step in the right direction. Being free to air, is how to attract the casual fan and grow your audience.

It's in total contrast to Formula 1, who as from this coming season, will be showing all live races in the UK on Sky, with only highlights on terrestrial TV.

As Robin Miller says, it's more races on terrestrial than Nascar has.

NTT have been confirmed as the series title sponsor, in what is a multi-year deal.

I'm reading that San Juan has developed a sizable (if controversial) mining development. That would explain how an international racetrack got built.
