Wilson gets Champ Car deal

Justin Wilson has been confirmed as Mi-Jack Conquest Racing's driver in 2004. The Formula 1 refugee will almost certainly be joined by a second driver but at the moment there is no indication who will this be. Wilson will drive a Lola but the second car will be an older Reynard as the team has had trouble finding another Lola. The announcement is good news for Champ Car as it struggles to get the necessary 18 cars for the opening race in Long Beach.

There was an additional boost on Thursday when Forsythe Racing announced that it will be running a third car for Patrick Carpentier. The car will be sponsored by team boss Gerry Forsythe's Indeck company.
