Ford backs CART

The Ford Motor Company has thrown its undisputed weight behind the CART series in 2003 and 2004. The series, which is already supported by Bridgestone will also feature sponsorship from Ford using "powered by Ford" as part of the series title.

Ford will be the only engine supplier in CART next year and while the Ford deal is good news for the struggling championship, there are still only a handful of cars and drivers confirmed for next year and as we are now heading towards Christmas more good news is needed if the series is going to have much credibility in 2003.
