Toccacelo to Champ Car

UPDATE Today's Autosport magazine reports that Enrico Toccacelo is planning to run the full Champ Car season next year and sources tell us he also has the money to do the final three races this year, which he confirms to Autosport. However, he thinks this year's money might be better spent on Winter testing. He was going to replace Andrew Ranger but now Ranger has a sponsor (Wal-Mart) for the rest of the year.

"I've got the budget to do the final three races so I'm looking at that, maybe with Conquest. But I could use the money to do some winter testing with the new car. I think it will be much more level between the teams next year and a good test driver will be able to make the difference."

08/06/06 Fears that Canadian Andrew Ranger will not race the whole Champ Car season because of financial woes appears to be coming true. Ranger's No. 27 Mi-Jack/Conquest Lola was being driven by Italian Enrico Toccacelo at the team's test at Road America. Toccacelo previously raced in the F3000 and A1GP series and as a test driver for the Minardi F-1 team. Toronto Sun
