European Adventure: The CART races in Germany and England will certainly be an adventure for many team members at Forsythe Championship Racing, as it will be the first time many of the team members have been to Europe.
Double Take: While traveling through various airports throughout the United States, you might notice large advertisements on light-boards that feature Bryan Herta. The Buckle Up America and the Crash Test Safety campaigns, sponsored by the National Department of Transportation and Safety are the subject of the ads.
Herta on the German 500: "I am really excited about the even in Germany. I went over there last year with Walker Racing and did 11 demonstration laps. It was incredible there were around 100,000 people there to watch 11 laps. I had a great time; the facility was first class. I feel confident about the two European races; it is essential we get some good finishes in. It seems like it has been one thing after another this past month, and we must get things turned around."
