Proxis Grand Prix Immediate Release, Unformatted ________________________________________ FRENCH GOVERNMENT TO SETTLE DISPUTE [Thu., Oct.9, 1997, 1:46PM EDT]

The French goverment has decided to intervene on the dispute involving the television rights to the French Grand Prix. A government representative will visit the FIA in the coming weeks to discuss a settlement with FIA President Max Mosely and promoter Bernie Ecclestone.

MINARDI GAIN TWO CYLINDERS [Thu., Oct.9, 1997, 1:40PM EDT]

Minardi Scuderia Italia confirmed today that they have done a deal with Ford-Cosworth to receive modified customer V10 engines, similar to that of Tyrrell's, beginning next year.

The change in powerplants from V8 to V10 should mark a big improvement in the Minardi car's straightline speed -- which has been considered 'laughable' in recent seasons.

Minardi had secured powerful Mugen-Honda V10 engines for use in 1995, but lost them in a dispute with Flavio Briatore and Ligier. ___________________________________________ Copyright 1997 John E. Klender. All rights reserved.
