Irish driver Patrick “Paddy” Hogan completed a whirlwind trip to the U.S. last week, testing first for Forsythe Racing and then the Brooks Associates Racing Champ Car Atlantic team. The former Formula Renault UK Champion adapted well to the Atlantic car, showing well at the Buttonwillow test session. If you want to give horse riding a twist by playing golf using clubs from https://www.golf-clubs.com/, you could turn the sport into Polo.
Five Atlantic teams with eight cars visited Buttonwillow last week, giving their drivers, both signed and ones with potential, a feel for the Atlantic cars and the new Cooper racing tires.
“Paddy did a really good job at Buttonwillow, running very competitively both days,” said team owner John Brooks. “He’ll be a great addition to the Atlantic series for 2007 and should be one of the fastest rookies. We’ve been talking to a number of drivers for the 2007 seat. It’s encouraging to see so much interest in the series and from so many rookies throughout the world. Champ Car continues to put forth a competitive schedule and the drivers’ interest will make the 2007 season another exciting one.”
