Paul Stoddart has targeted Dutch duo Jos Verstappen and Robert Doornbos as drivers for his new ChampCar line-up next year.
Stoddart, who last week purchased the CTE-HVM team and immediately re-branded it as Minardi team USA, ran both Verstappen and Doornbos (pictured) during his time as the Minardi Formula One team boss, and said that he would be keen to take both stateside.
Stoddart said: “As for Jos Verstappen, Jos and I go back a long way. He drove for me in 2003, but I go back as far as '97 with Jos and we have a good working relationship. I think he would be an asset to the series.
