2004 dates announced

CART has solidified its 2004 schedule, but there are still several questions to be answered. The legal dispute between CART and the Fontana circuit has left the latter part of the season uncertain

2004 dates announced

The California Speedway is suing the body over the cancellation of this year's final round scheduled for the track. The event was called off due to the recent fires in the region.

"We have an unresolved situation in terms of a date at California Speedway," said CART chief Chris Pook. "Until this issue is resolved, we are unable to finalize dates at Mexico City, Korea and Miami.

"However, agreements exist with all of these venues and once the California Speedway issue is resolved, we will announce the remaining race dates.

" A similar situation exists with a possible return to Brands Hatch, and we will be able to proceed in that regard as soon as ownership rights to the track are worked out."

The race in South Korea has been confirmed on what is set to be a "temporary road course". The venue for the Las Vegas event is still uncertain, and the race will not necessarily be run on the city's oval speedway.

Laguna Seca's race will move back to its more traditional September date.

The one-time Schumacher rival rebooting his career Down Under

Joey Mawson made waves in the middle of the last decade, beating future Haas Formula 1 driver Mick Schumacher - among other highly-rated talents - to the 2016 German F4 title. A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights
