USGPF1/Cameron Motorsports driver Kyle Krisiloff set for start of 2003 CART Toytota Atlantic Championship Series.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN. - - MARCH 18, 2003 - - U. S. Grand Prix Formula One/Camerson Motorsports driver, Kyle Krisiloff enters his second season, and first full season, of CART Toyota Atlantic Championship Series competition beginning this weekend at the season opening Tecate Telmex Monterrey Grand Prix at Fundidora Park in Monterrey, Mexico.

Krisiloff is the youngest competitor in the Toyota Atlantic Series. He joins a new team in 2003 and will drive the #13 U. S. Grand Prix Formula One/Cameron Motorsports Toyota/Swift/Yokohama entry, which is owned by 21st Century Technology, sponsored by U. S. Grand Prix Formula One and managed by Cameron Motorsports.

"After getting a full preseason of winter testing with the U. S. Grand Prix Formula One/Cameron Motorsports Team, I feel we have learned a lot and are prepared for the start of the 2003 CART Toyota Atlantic Championsip season next weekend in Monterrey, Mexico," Krisiloff began. "I am looking forward to being very competitive in my first full season in Toyota Atlantics," he noted.

Krisiloff went on to say, "Because I competed in six CART Toyota Atlantic Championship races last year I have a little more experience going into the 2003 season. The first six races will be new for me, so I still have a lot to learn at those events. However, by the second half of the season, when we compete on tracks where I have already raced, the experience I gained last year should really help me in both qualifying and the races."

Krisiloff made his Toyota Atlantic Championship debut last year running six races for the U. S. Grand Prix Formula One/Patrick Racing Team. The talented native of Indianapolis, Indiana finished five of the six events he contested placing in the points three times. His best qualifying position was 14th and his best finish was 13th both achieved at the season finale in Denver. Krisiloff placed 28th in the championship standings with six points.

Krisiloff is the son of former Champ Car driver Steve Krisiloff. His mother is Josie George, sister of Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Tony George.
