FERRARI TAKES CASE TO APPEALS COURT IN SEPT.

The latest installment in Formula One's espionage scandal will be heard by an appeals body next month.

The sport's governing body, FIA, said Wednesday that Ferrari's case against rival McLaren will be heard by its International Court of Appeal on Sept. 13.

The dispute started when a 780-page technical dossier on Ferrari cars was found at the home of McLaren chief designer Mike Coughlan, who has since been suspended. Nigel Stepney, the Ferrari mechanic who allegedly supplied the documents in April, was fired.

After a hearing in Paris late last month, FIA's World Motor Sport Council ruled that McLaren did possess secret Ferrari documents but did not punish the team because there was insufficient evidence the material was misused. But Ferrari protested that McLaren hadn't been punished and complained it hadn't been allowed to make its case at the hearing.

NASCAR: Jeremy Mayfield will not return to Bill Davis Racing next season, the team said. Mayfield joined BDR this year as the team expanded to two cars, but he has struggled to make races and has only qualified for eight of the 21 events this season. No replacement driver was named.
