Dominguez Switches to Forsythe

Champ Car race winner Mario Dominguez has confirmed that he will be switching from the HVM team to Forsythe Racing for the new season, after it was decided that sponsorship issues meant he could no longer continue with his old team

Dominguez Switches to Forsythe

Dominguez had been central to HVM's plans thanks to the prospect of major commercial interest from homeland Mexico, but on the back of some of those deals not coming off it has made sense for him to switch to Forsythe. HVM are due to announce their drivers in the next few days.

HVM co-owner and managing director Keith Wiggins said: "We enjoyed a mutually rewarding relationship with Mario, but due to the changing business circumstances it was decided that his joining Forsythe Racing is the best course of action for all parties going forward.

"We wish him much success. HVM is looking forward to announcing its two car line-up which will occur in the next few days."

Dominguez, who will join former champion Paul Tracy at Forsythe, said: "I am very excited to be joining the Forsythe team since over the past years they have shown the commitment and level of excellence needed to win races and championships at this level."

Dominguez's new team boss Jerry Forsythe added: "It's great to have Mario Dominguez joining our racing team. In my opinion he is the best Mexican racing driver in North America; he has natural talent, great determination and he has developed a good deal of experience over the past two years in the Series.

"I expect him to mesh very well with our group and to be a contender for the Championship this year alongside his experienced team mate, 2003 Champion Paul Tracy. Between Mario and Paul I'm expect us to be in contention at every race and on course to regain our position as the championship team of this highly competitive Champ Car racing series."
