Last night was the unveiling of the new Formula Atlantic car for 2006. A number of other announcements were also made during that event.

The series entered a partenership with Mazda for three years.

They will reintroduce standing starts at Cleveland(and possible other events to
follow, such as Road America).

Katherine Legge has signed with PKV for a full time Champ Car ride.

Jimmy Vasser said, "I will be doing a lot less driving next year." He said he
never wanted to make a big retirement announcement so this is how he did it.

Ryan Hunter-Rhey and Bobby Rahal were at the event(seperately).

There are now 27 confirmed drivers, 31 confirmed entries, and 40 cars ordered.

It appears that Dyson racing does not have any immediate plans to enter the

Charles Zwolsman was there (last years champion) and he has no anounced plans
for this season as of now.

I think the Infinite Pro series has about 10 confirmed drivers.

The video of the presentation is here, ,
it starts off with a few videos of Atlantic history.

Vasser drove the car onto stage(below).

Also Takuma Sato and Yuji Ide are confirmed for Super Aguri F1. Should have been Two Ndinjas.
