CART announces Brands Hatch race
The Brands Hatch event will replace Rockingham as the only British round of the Champ Car series. The Rockingham event was dropped from the series after two years, the event promoters declaring that the race was not a money maker.
Speaking of Brands Hatch in Birmingham Thursday, Pook said, "It's a fabulous race track for us and our cars, and the public will be able to see virtually every aspect of it from anywhere on the circuit. The Indy circuit isn't really an oval, but it is as close to a road racing oval as you are going to get."
