Salo for PK Racing?

Mika Salo is still trying to decide what to do now that he has been dropped by the Toyota F1 team. The Finnish driver has been over in the United States in recent days, attending the CART test in Sebring in Florida and having a look at the CART scene. There have been rumours for some time that Salo might find a drive with Craig Pollock's new PK Racing in the CART Champ Car series. The plan at the moment is for PK Racing to get its one-car operation up-and-running in the early part of the year and then there may be the possibility to expand the operation to two cars although it is not clear yet when this will happen. With new teams getting considerable support at the moment from the CART organisation the finance involved in this is not enormous and so Salo's chances must be seen to be quite high.
