Matsuura & Philippe In At Conquest

According to Racer Magazine, with the loss of Alex Tagliani Conquest Racing will compete in at least 3 more Indycar races this season.

Racer reports that IRL vet Kosuke Matsuura will pilot the #34 Conquest ride in his homeland of Motegi, Japan. Nelson Philippe will then jump in the ride for both Infineon and the season finale at Homestead-Miami.


Wow, adding Phillipe (who was totally in over-his-head at Indy this year) and Kosucky (who you'd think would have found a different hobby by now to keep him busy) is the equivalent of trading Freddy Patek for Rafael Santana and Mario Mendoza.

Hopefully Conquest can hire/take the money of Scott Mayer for Chicago too and really go for the gold.
