Mark Blundell is following the course set by Nigel Mansell by switching from Formula One to IndyCar racing. Blundell, not offered a Grand Prix drive for this season, has signed for the PacWest Racing Group to compete in the 1996 World Series.

The 29-year-old will drive alongside another ex-Formula One driver, Mauricio Gugelmin, after impressing during a test drive. Blundell will compete in the Ford Cosworth-powered car at all 16 races in the series.
