F1 'spygate' conspirator Mike Coughlan has re-emerged in the world of American NASCAR racing.
The Canadian website auto123.com reports that the Briton, formerly McLaren's chief designer, is now working for the North Carolina-based Michael Waltrip Racing.
In 2007, he was sacked by McLaren following accusations he received a dossier of information stolen by Ferrari's Nigel Stepney.
He is reportedly now Michael Waltrip Racing's director of vehicle design, after helping to design an armoured vehicle called Ocelot.
I drew a new car every year and I had a great time
"I came from an environment (F1) where I drew a new car every year and I had a great time. There was no chance that there'd be a new vehicle every year with the Ocelot," said Coughlan.
Already at Michael Waltrip Racing was McLaren's former head of race operations Steve Hallam.
