Minardi to give Herta another run
The Minardi team is to give Bryan Herta a solid testing opportunity at the end of the season, during the post-season month of testing. The Californian driver had a run in a Minardi at the recent Thunder in the Park event and got a taste for Formula 1 and hopes to be able to put together a deal to race for the team next year.
After the Donington event the team said that they had been very impressed by Herta, despite the fact that it was not a proper test.
There is currently considerable action in Formula 1 circles to increase interest in the United States of America and Herta's desire to land a drive is matched by that of Townsend Bell, another ex-CART driver, who was at Spa - his second visit to a Grand Prix in two weeks.
