Former Atlantic Series alumni and Champ Car driver Katherine Legge is about to sign a multi-year with an IndyCar team to make a comeback into the North American motorsports scene for the 2012 season.
According to reports, the former DTM driver has secured sponsorship for a full-time ride with a team to be determined later this week. Her deal with this squad will be for two years with an option for a third.
Back in her Champ Car years, the English driver drove for PKV racing in 2006 before switching to Dale Coyne Racing in 2007.
Then, the 31-year old driver participated in the German Touting Car Championship (DTM) from 2008 until 2010.
At the same time as my esteemed colleague was off driving the new 2015 WRX in the Californian sun, I was stuck at home in well-below-zero temperatures and snow behind the wheel of a '14 Subaru Impreza. While the two may seem worlds apart, they are borne of the same basic instincts, and that's saying something.
