Legge to Test Champ Car

Katherine Legge will wait until her Champ Car test with PKV Racing before deciding whether to go racing in the series next year

Legge to Test Champ Car

The Briton, who took three wins on route to third place in this season's Toyota Atlantic championship. has been offered a test in a Champ Car by her current boss Kevin Kalkhoven at the end of this season.

She will take part in the test with Jimmy Vasser to be able to compare her performance against the former series' champion and will then decide if she is going to graduate or compete in the remodelled Champ Car Atlantic formula.

Legge told the Autosport Radio Show: "I'm in two minds about next season. At the moment the plan is Atlantics unless I do something stunning in this test, but I don't know. My ego wants to go to Champ Car right now. Then I'd be ready for the new chassis formula in 2007. I'm going to wait and see how I do in that test.

"I don't want to be driving around for a year gaining experience. I want to be finishing on the podium.

"I'm not coming back to race in the Europe, that's for sure. My future has Champ Car written all over it."
