Yoong ousted by Salles

Gualter Salles is to replace Alex Yoong at the wheel of the Dale Coyne Racing entry in the CART Champ Car series this year. The Malaysian driver has been with the team for only four races but has had to stand down because he cannot find the funding to continue. The former Minardi F1 driver hopes to be able to find another drive in the series.

Salles (32) returns to the series to continue what has been an intermittent CART career, which began in 1997. He raced with Dale Coyne in 1998 and, 1999 and 2000.
