Conquest prepares for the future.

Conquest Racing has announced the addition of a number of key members to its back-room staff as it begins to turn its focus towards the 2009 IndyCar Series season.

The former Champ Car converts has elected to adopt a new 'accept no limits' business philosophy and as such has made three key signings to its marketing and sales team as the team moves forwards with its plans for a second season of IndyCar competition.

Director of sales and marketing Lou Cantin, business development consultant Pablo Santa Cruz and sales and marketing consultant Brian Skinner have all joined up with Eric Bachelart's team following the conclusion of the regular season, with just the non-championship event at Surfers Paradise left to run.

All three bring experience of working in the motorsport field, and Bachelart said they would only strengthen his team moving forwards.

“We're focused on moving ahead, on growing this team as we continue to pursue excellence in the IndyCar Series,” he said. “It's been a year of learning for us, of getting used to our new surroundings and now we're ready to take this one step further.

“The additions of Lou, Pablo and Brian are an important first step in helping us take on this new direction, their experience and different expertise will be of great value to us as we take this team to the next level.”
