HistoryEdit

Originally known as Euromotorsport, the team made its CART debut in 1989 with Jean-Pierre Frey at Phoenix.[3] After Frey was unable to complete the USAC Rookie Orientation Program at Indianapolis, the team signed Davy Jones, who qualified for the Indianapolis 500 and finished in 7th place in his only appearance for the team that year.[4]

The team went on to compete in the CART Indy Car World Series, often fielding a number of European pay drivers, from 1989 to 1994. The team's best finish was 4th place in the 1993 Detroit Grand Prix by Andrea Montermini. The team attempted to qualify its drivers for the Indianapolis 500 a number of times, but only succeeded three times, with Davy Jones in 1989 and 1993 and Mike Groff in 1992. The team changed its name to EuroInternational in 1997 and moved to the IRL IndyCar Series and fielded a car in two races for Billy Roe, including the 1997 Indianapolis 500.

EuroInternational was away from racing for a few years before resurfacing in Formula Renault and Formula BMW USA. The team was rumored to return to Champ Car in 2006[5] but the team never came to fruition. In 2007, the team announced that it had purchased the assets of Alan Sciuto Racing and was preparing to compete in the 2008 Champ Car Atlantic Series with Italian driver Edoardo Piscopo.[6] As the season began, the team fielded a pair of cars for Daniel Morad and Luis Schiavo rather than one for Piscopo.

In 2008 the team also began fielding the Superleague Formula teams for SC Corinthians and Atlético Madrid driven by Antônio Pizzonia and Andy Soucek.

They did not continue in either the Atlantic Championship or Superleague Formula in 2009.
