Sato to race Indycar

Former Formula One driver Takuma Sato is to compete in the Indycar series this year.

The 33-year-old from Tokyo, who drove for Jordan, BAR Honda and Super Aguri between 2002 and 2008 before the latter team folded, will race for Jimmy Vasser’s KV Racing Technology squad.

After nearly two years of inactivity, Sato said: “I have really missed racing and can’t wait to get started in this new challenge with such a great team.

“With such a great champion as Jimmy leading the team, I am really confident we will soon be a strong combination.

“I am also really motivated by the chance to be fighting at the front of the field, something I have missed in recent seasons.”
