    On the other hand Wilson’s had an 11 year career in Indycar, being paid to drive (unlike his brief stint in F1). As I understand it, he is a candidate for Andretti Autosport’s fourth car, which may end up with a rotating driver lineup.

    Looks like Nicholas Latifi is using the Pro Mazda winter series as a warm-up for FR3.5. Though he just crashed heavily in qualifying at Barber Motorsports Park:

    Teams won’t necessarily be using all of the components, they’ll be optimised per track.

    Chevrolet have debuted their 2015 (road\street course) package:

    Yes, you are allowed to cover the rear wheels in Indycar for more aerodynamic efficiency. Not sure about the uprights everywhere, but it’ll be interesting to see how it does on the track…

    British-Italian driver Alessandro Latif will contest the Pro Mazda championship this year: http://www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk/2015/02/latif-step-onto-mazda-road-indy-ladder/

    Latif’s career highlights include competing in the Le Mans 24 Hours, Rolex 24 at Daytona and Petit Le Mans in addition to becoming the youngest-ever outright winner of a VdeV sports prototype race. The 18-year-old has scored class victories in the Gulf 12 Hours and took the 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series Pro-Am Championship crown. He was also invited to participate in a test outing in Audi’s DTM touring car at the end of 2013, and subsequently campaigned one of the German manufacturer’s R8 LMS GT3 cars in the Bathurst 12 Hours earlier this month.

    Indy Lights champion Gabriel Chaves confirmed at Bryan Herta Autosport: http://www.indycar.com/News/2015/02/2-5-Familiarity-with-tracks-will-aid-Chaves

    Chaves is the fourth successive Indy Lights champion to compete in the Verizon IndyCar Series (Sage Karam made his series debut in the 2014 Indianapolis 500, finishing ninth; Tristan Vautier was the 2013 Sunoco Rookie of the Year; and 2011 champion Josef Newgarden enters his fourth season with CFH Racing).

    King’s father can probably afford it. ;-)

    Stoneman’s said “expect an announcement hopefully this week” so he’s being rather coy about his plans so far.

    Why they would cancel it after the track improvements were well underway is a mystery to me (and TV Band’s statement suggests the sanction fee had been paid), but then again CART weren’t paid the last time they went to Brazil…

    Ayla Agren, the F1600 series champion last year, will step up to the USF2000 championship remaining with Team Pelfrey. http://usf2000.com/news/team-pelfrey-confirms-three-drivers-for-inaugural-usf2000-campaign

    After placing strongly in national karting championships in Northern Europe (including an ICA junior title), Agren made the decision to pursue a single seater career in the US, culminating in the F1600 Formula Ford championship title two years later.
