Ahh, modern motorsports! Good to see that they are planning on "delivering value" to their sponsors this season!

Remember when we used to race to win?

Anyways, before I am reminded to stay strictly on topic (Achtung, Baby!), it is good to see a new entry on the grid. With a one-car team these days "delivering value" is more difficult...

They ran occasionally from 89-92. They ran Gary Bettenhausen, Mark Dismore and John Paul Jr. (shared one car) in 89 and stuck with Paul Jr. from 90-92 making Indy one-off attempts. Their best finish was 10th at Indy in '92 with Paul Jr. They then failed to make the 500 for 93 and that was the last we heard from Mann.

I think that as long as the IRL website doesn't make an official statement, it's just about good rumours; btw the same italiaracing.net

http://italiaracing.net/notizia.asp?id=17566&cat=3

report of Patrick Long entering the series with Luczo/Penske outfit, it's not specified whethedr it would be for the whole season.

It's quite curisous that this little italian website report things that nobody know in the States...

If you go to the link marcus, there is a teeny-bitty flag (British, I think) that you can click on to get the site's English language version...

Since that "little Italian website" is (of course) on the web, they're privy to every blog and rumor that you are...no, it's not curious at all. In cyberspace, they could just as well be next door.

There was a small announcement some time ago about this, I believe in the indy star. Doesn't really seem to be much more than an "expression of interest" at this time.

... and someone is now debunking it elsewhere, stating that Patrick is committed to Porsche.

AFAIK, Pat Long is contracted directly to Porsche. I don't know what or if that has any impact on what he can race elsewhere, but usually drivers signed by them can only race porsches in their home country.
