Word on the street is that Patrick Carpentier's race engineer, Eric Zeto, at Forsythe has chosen not to follow him to Cheever Racing and the IRL. Carpentier has already announced his 2005 plans yet Zeto still is working at Forsythe Racing. Some might say that with the recent arrival of Henri Durand, Mecachrome, and Iain Watt this past season he may not have made Zeto welcome at Cheever. But Watt is the engineer on Barron's car and Durand is not a race engineer. Zeto must have based his decision on the relative merits of the two series and chosen to stay where the pastures are greener and more secure. Mark C.
