Prost designer to switch to Panoz?
IT is nearly three years since Don Panoz acquired G Force and Van Diemen in order to expand his racing activities. Since then Van Diemen has continued to be successful in Formula Ford but G Force has faded out of the Indy Racing League scene under pressure from Dallara. With the IRL planning new chassis regulations for the 2003 season we hear that Panoz wants to make a comeback in the series and has been trying to hire Prost Grand Prix chief designer Jean-Paul Gousset to head the new design team.
The change of IRL chassis rules is expected to bring both Lola and Reynard into IRL and so the competition is going to be intense as the big racing car production firms go head-to-head.
