When his Formula 1 career stalled, the Italian Bruno Giacomelli tried his luck in the USA. He made 11 starts in the CART championship in 1984 and 1985, 10 of which were with Patrick Racing.

The Italian also attempted, but failed to qualify his March amongst the 33 fastest cars, for the 1984 Indianapolis 500.

His best finish was a fifth place at Meadowlands street course in 1985, a year where he was consistent in his March 85C-Cosworth, with 6 top-ten finishes, but he was not retained for the 1986 and returned to Europe where he, from 1985 to 1990 drove mainly Porsches in the World Endurance Championship.
