Dan Clarke has revealed he wants one of the drives with the new Minardi Team USA as they prepare for their first Champ Car season.

Despite team boss Paul Stoddart targeting Jos Verstappen and Robert Doornbos for his driver line up, Clarke is making it known he is interested too.

The Brit raced for the team in their previous guise as CTE-Racing HVM during 2006 and wants to stay with the team in their re-branded state.

Speaking to Autosport Clarke said, "I haven't got a drive yet, but now the team have secured their future we can resume talks with [team boss] Keith Wiggins.

Stoddart confirmed his take over on Monday and announced the team will race three cars in 2007, which could mean there will be a drive for Clarke.

Clarke added, "At the end of the season, Keith said that he would like to keep me, but we've had to give him some space in the past month. Now we can get back on the phone."

Clarke said he's optimistic for the future now that Stoddart is involved.

"Keith knows how to run a team, he just doesn't have the money behind him to pump into it."

"I don't know the details but Paul wanted to get involved in Champ Car, so it's a pretty good deal all around."
