Ryan Lewis ready to go in Toronto

Practice begins tomorrow for the Champ Car Atlantic race in Toronto, Canada, and Ryan Lewis will be out to consolidate his recent pace into a great race result. Ryan hasn't raced at the Toronto street circuit before but that was the case at the two previous events and it did nothing to slow the young Briton down.

Ryan's team-mate, Graham Rahal, won both races last time out in Cleveland so Ryan is keen to get out there and beat him.

"It's going to be very different to anywhere else I have driven before. Everyone says that the secret to being quick on a street course is to obviously keep the car in one piece and sort of drive within yourself. In the UK, I have driven on very bumpy and very tight, narrow circuits so I don't think that is going to be such a problem. I think that having to learn the circuit will be a disadvantage because some of the other guys know the track, but I will be suffering from that all year," said Ryan who registered the second fastest lap in both races in Cleveland. "I think that if I can carry on the same pace that I've shown in the first three events that I've done this year, I don't see why I'm not going to come out on top."

The Toronto race takes place on Sunday morning at 1000hrs local time (1500hrs UK time).
