Montagny out, Soucek in for Zolder

This weekend's Superleague Formula driver line-up has seen another high-profile departure, with Franck Montagny following fellow French ex-Formula 1 racer Sebastien Bourdais out of the championship.
But while Montagny leaves, Virgin F1 test and reserve driver Andy Soucek has joined the series' ranks at Zolder in Belgium with Sporting.
Bourdais' exit means there is no Olympique Lyonnais car on the grid this weekend, but Montagny's departure from the Bordeaux car has opened the door for Dutch Porsche Supercup racer Jaap van Lagen to replace him.
It is also all-change at Sporting Lisbon, where Borja Garcia has been dropped in favour of fellow Spaniard Soucek, last year's Formula 2 champion.
In another move, Narain Karthikeyan's PSV Eindhoven car is no longer being run by Jan Lammers' Racing for Holland concern, and is being looked after by Atech Reid for the series' sixth round this weekend.
