Toronto, July 3 2002 - Eighteen-year old race car driver Christopher Guerrieri will compete this weekend in one of Canada's most prestigious racing car events - the famed Toronto Molson Indy. Guerrieri, a rookie in the Canadian Formula Ford Championship, will contest Round 4 of the series this Sunday afternoon with a chance of capturing his second victory of the year. The former karting champion brilliantly secured his maiden victory a month ago at the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal.

Guerrieri, the driver of the silver, #11 NGCL Cherry Beach Sound Vector race car endured a disappointing race last weekend at Autodrome St. Eustache, Quebec. He had difficulties at the standing start and lost a couple of places in the first corners. He began to pass competitors but he was involved in a crash on lap seven which took him out of the running. His Vector was badly damaged in the accident but worse, it was a costly retirement for him.

After three rounds, Christopher lies in third place in the Canadian Formula Ford standings, having collected a second-place finish in the season's opener in Mosport Park and a victory in Montreal. The young competitor who raced on Europe's most gorgeous race tracks last year as part of the French La Filière scholarship program looks forward to winning his second race of the year in front of his home crowd.

"I'm delighted to race home, especially in such a high-profile event," said Guerrieri. "I am now totally focused on winning the Toronto event in front of a huge crowd as well as the CART and Formula Atlantic team owners. Like Montreal, Toronto is a very big event with lots of journalists and TV crews."
