If I'm not mistaken, she's the one who had the huge accident in CART and totaled her car. Lucky she survived that, yes its tough. Anyone who drives IndyCar deserves the greatest of respect if the recent accidents are anything to go by (not to mention the Dan Wheldon tragedy). How far she goes remains to be seen.....

So we have the Pink Panther and inspecteur Clouzeau in the same team then :p

I must say I have some kind of soft spot for Legge since her horrific high speed CCWS crash at Road America. I was so scared of the worst and so relieved to see her walk and smile unhurt afterwards.

Good luck to her then.

You're right John. Her rear wing broke at one of the fastest sections at Road America during a Champ Car race. It's amazing that she survived. More remarkable, she walked away almost unscathed. I'm pretty certain she will struggle mightily as the IndyCar driver line up is very deep, and the new car will be a handful to drive.

She is a capable driver, and she does have experience on these tracks, so we'll just see how all the teams and drivers respond to these new cars. Hopefully it will be an entertaining year, and not just a Ganassi-Penske-fest! The new cars do look and sound cool!

Indycar must mean a lot to her.

She left a very cushy gig with Audi in DTM where she was collecting a paycheck to go to where she now has to find a sponsor.

But the article is also quite inspiring to me. Especially the "laser focus" part.
