Wilson looks to US for 2002

NEWLY crowned F3000 Champion Justin Wilson is looking to the US and the possibility of driving a champcar in 2002 after losing his bid for the second Jordan seat.

"A test drive in Formula 1 is still an option for next season, but I would prefer to keep racing, so I want to find out what is available in the States", Wilson told The Sunday Mirror.

"Formula 1 is my target, and it's just that I may have to try to get there by a different route".

CART has been used as a stepping stone to F1 very successfully in recent past. Both Jacques Villeneuve and Juan Pablo Montoya made instant impacts on F1 after making the move from CART.
