CHAMP CAR WORLD SERIES FINALIZES EUROPEAN DATES ON 2007 SCHEDULE

INDIANAPOLIS (April 7, 2007) -- The Champ Car World Series today finalized the European portion of its 2007 race schedule, announcing the movement of the Zolder date.

The inaugural Champ Car Grand Prix of Belgium, which is to be held on the Zolder Circuit, will move from September 9 to August 26. The event will be followed the next week by the Dutch Grand Prix, which will take place September 2 at Assen.

"The Zolder date was moved to ease concerns that the FIA had about our race being too close to a Formula 1 event at Spa on September 16, and we want to give the open-wheel fans of the region every opportunity to attend both races if they so desire." said John Clagett, Champ Car Executive Vice-President of Planning and Development. "

The 16-race Champ Car World Series season will kick off April 8 with the Vegas Grand Prix, which is the first race to ever be run on the streets of Las Vegas. Champ Car will run six events at new venues in 2007 including the inaugural Champ Car Grand Prix of China. Champ Car continues to work with the promoters and the FIA to finalize its China race date for 2007 with a final announcement expected in the coming weeks.
