Hunter-Reay signs for Rocketsports

Formula 1 aspirant Ryan Hunter-Reay has signed to drive for Paul Gentilozzi's Rocketsports in Champ Cars this year, closing down one of the few remaining opportunities on offer for exiled European drivers such as Bjorn Wirdheim and Giorgio Pantano. Hunter-Reay says that he wants to use Champ Cars as the place to launch an F1 career and is aiming to win races with the team, which won a race last season with driver Alex Tagliani.

Tagliani remains with the team as Hunter-Reay's team mate.
