CART and Villeneuve (again)
There is no confirmation of the plan at the moment but our sources indicate that the big fish that CART is still after is Jacques Villeneuve and that there continue to be talks between the CART people and BAR. BAR team boss David Richards has said that he is no longer interested in doing a deal with Villeneuve for the long-term so if Jacques is to come back to F1 after a CART career he will have to discuss a deal elsewhere.
It is anticipated that CART will use some of the money to attract new teams to the series and has been talking with a number of Formula 3000 operations about the possibility of them establishing US offshoots.
