Cosworth renews Champ Car deal

Our sources in the United States are reporting that the stability of Cosworth Racing has been bolstered in recent days by a new agreement to supply engines to the Champ Cars series in 2005. The Ford-badged engines will remain much as they have been for the last two seasons. The company will also be continuing its involvement with the Chevrolet-badged engines which are used in the Indy Racing League. The company is expected to continue to supply F1 engines to Jaguar Racing, Jordan and Minardi and could even supply a fourth team if one emerged. This is not likely to happen although one or two of the Formula 3000 teams are looking at a switch to F1 as they do not consider the new GP2 series to be economically viable.
