The Cosworth Chevrolet goes into action

This weekend at the Michigan International Speedway Sam Hornish Jr. will get his first chance to take on the other big guns in the Indy Racing League, using the Ford-funded, Cosworth-designed Chevrolet-badged engine. Hornish says that the new engine should put him and the other Chevrolet runners up with the frontrunners in IRL.

The deal is great news for Cosworth as the income from Chevrolet will help to balance the books and so reduce the pressure on the F1 program.
