Wirdheim signs for HVM

Bjorn Wirdheim has signed to drive for the Hola Viva Mexico team in Champ Cars this year. The Swede, who won the Formula 3000 Championship in 2003 and spent last year working as a test driver for Jaguar Racing, will lead the team, which has just lost its planned first driver Mario Dominguez to Forsythe Racing. HVM has yet to announce who will drive the second car but Jos Verstappen and Ronnie Bremer have recently tested for the team.
