AFS and Andretti end collaboration

Adam Carroll, AFS Andretti, Lexington 2010Occasional IndyCar entrant AFS Racing has parted company with Andretti Autosport, but still hopes to run its own independent IndyCar programme in the near future.

Gary Peterson's AFS team joined forces with Michael Andretti's squad three years ago, primarily for Indy Lights, where the AFS Andretti team took Raphael Matos and JR Hildebrand to championship titles.

The partnership was also extended to IndyCar, with Franck Montagny driving an AFS Andretti entry at Sears Point in 2009, and Adam Carroll getting two starts with the combination this year.

But AFS and Andretti have now announced that they will end their collaboration and enter separate teams in the feeder series next year - and potentially also in IndyCar.

"AFS Racing's partnership with Andretti Autosport has certainly been a successful one, but it's time for both organisations to try some new things," said Peterson.

"I've enjoyed working with Michael and developing more good young talent within open-wheel racing. I expect AFS Racing to continue to have a strong Firestone Indy Lights programme and we'll continue to work toward our bigger goal of fielding cars at the IndyCar level on a regular basis."
