Two-time F1 world champion Emerson Fittipaldi announced his return to the Champ Car series as a team owner. He had retired from the series in 1996 after a massive accident at Michigan. Initial reports in 2003 suggested he would race in the series but in the end he recruited Tiago Montiero to do the job. The team raced for just one season with disappointing results, making it even less successful than Fittipaldi's F1 team that he owned with his brother and scored just three podiums in 103 races.
