Lee Janotta should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Jeez Liz... Calm down, all I'm suggesting is there are some places where CART teams could look to find driving talent that they've been ignoring lately. Time was when they'd bring in drivers from Trans-Am, IMSA... Lately it's just been guys from F3/F3000, ex-F1, or Indy Lights... I think it'd be beneficial to all if the team principals just took a bit wider perspective, instead of constantly re-hiring guys who are just, well, "good enough."

I didn't say _anything_ about quotas... It's _always_ going to be up the the team principals who they hire, and rightly so.

Hey, whoever they hire I'm happy for them. I'm just saying there are some drivers, I would like to see join the series, and I'm sure the same is true for others.

Bryan does have a lot of talent, but he's had his chances in the sport and I wouldn't mind seeing some of the Atlantics guys given a chance...just my personal preference. If Bryan gets a ride, all the best to him!

Sorry if I went overboard; I'm just glad to see anybody start up a new team and if he wants to hire the Rolling Stones to drive his cars, that's fine with me. When I start my own team I'm hiring Josh Beaulieu even if he's NOT an American.

P.S. I thought of a name for my next year's Fantasy Team. TGIF The Guys In Front. If they have a bad weekend they will be The Guys in Frocks.

I would love to see that Herta/Gidley team. Damn, I have to win the Lottery.

Alice Cooper has bought a NASCAR team. It could happen!

I'm being led to believe that Herta will drive for FCR if the Yoong deal comes together.

I like Herta because he's the eternal underdog. There are times when he's smoking fast, but there are all the other times when he beyond slow. If I were a team owner, I can't say I'd hire him if he offered to pay me. Herta has blown it, no one's going to give him a chance now he's repeatedly shown his inconsistancy. On the up side, Brian will forever be known as the master of Laguna.

Don't forget that Herta ran a car for Forsythe at Laguna Seca a couple of years ago. Forsythe said at the time that he would run Herta if he could find the finance for a third car. What chance Herta and Yoong in a Forsythe owned, American based Reynard team underwritten by alot of Malaysian money and some associate sponsors. Herta did test for Minardi and Yoong is ex Minardi, and there are rumours of Minardi participation in CART. Add fuel to the fire with possible Red Bull particpation in Minardi's Formula one team and how much sense would it make....nah its only speculation...
