Jari Nurminen wanted a full CART season 1995 Euromotorsport, but his money would have been enough for just a few races, he didn’t want to try.

Was Gonzalo Rodriguez likely to move to CART for 2000, prior his fatal crash in a Penske at Laguna Seca? I know he wasn't going to Penske because that was already earmarked for Moore.

Andrea Montermini already had prior CART experience anyway and Sergey Zlobin briefly became a Minardi F1 test driver.

Jorg Muller turned down a drive in the 1998 CART Series.

Allan McNish was also present at the 1996 Bettenhausen Sebring test.

Jorg Muller also turned down an offer from Bettenhausen for 2001 so Michel Jourdain Jr. ended up retaining his seat.

Marcel Tiemann looked set to join Zakspeed/Forsythe for 2001 but his deal fell through and the seat went to Bryan Herta.

NASCAR racer Kurt Busch tested for Bobby Rahal's team ahead of the 2003 CART season.

Buddy Rice and Memo Gidley tested for Chip Ganassi Racing in late 2000 with a view to a seat(s) for 2001, of which they went to Nicolas Minassian and Bruno Junquiera respectively, though Gidley would get his chance mid-season when Minassian received the boot.

Edit : In addition, Bryan Herta received an offer to join Dale Coyne Racing in the middle of 2000 after Takuya Kurosawa was injured at Michigan, which he declined allowing Alex Barron to drive for (and nearly win for at Fontana) the minnows.

Ah yes, Senna did have that Penske test in the off season of 92/93. According to Fittipaldi it was a serious test and he was really thinking of doing the Indy 500. And of course Ayrton raved about the lack of electronic driver aids on the car

Gonchi had a pre-agreement with Pat Patrick.

Ross Cheever entered the 2000 Indy 500 as a 2nd entry for his father Eddie's team but withdrew without attempting to qualify.

Ayrton Senna and his test for Roger Penske has been mentioned.

Newman-Haas once looked to Alain Prost as a possible substitute for Mario Andretti.

My mistake.

Tony Bettenhausen offered Cor Euser the 1992 seat that ended up going to Stefan Johansson.

The ill-fated $5 million challenge of 2011, AJ Allmendinger expressed an interest but only Travis Pastrana, Kasey Kahne and Alex Zanardi actually took up the challenge and for various reasons, none of them could go through with it.

Logan Sargeant was due to test for AJ Foyt Racing last October and was looking to drive for them this year if the budget could found.
