Mike Conway to Andretti Motorsport

2MB managed British driver Mike Conway has been announced as an Andretti Motorsport driver for the 2011 INDYCAR season, this is particularly good news after a half season on the sidelines following a horrific 220mph crash into the catch fence in the 2010 Indy 500.

I’m really pleased to see Mike get back into INDYCAR, and with a top class team. However this does leave a slightly odd taste in the mouth since this same team released Tony Kanaan from a long term contract at the end of last season, citing lack of budget to continue running him.

who knows why the situation has changed? Maybe Mike’s people have brought sponsors to the party, either that or Tony really did pay a high price for his in-season arguments with Danica Patrick.

I’m sure we’ll never know, and it really doesn’t matter, it’s in the past and I wish Mike, Tony and Danica well for the 2011 INDYCAR season.
