Only a few days after the Vegas Grand Prix Justin is in California preparing for this weekend's Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The flagship race around the palm-lined street circuit is a favourite amongst fans and drivers alike.

Justin and CDW/RSPORTS are familiar with the track's characteristics and ran a strong race in 2006, taking runner-up spot. But after a difficult time in Las Vegas they'll be working flat out to find a competitive set-up for the #9 car here.

"I'm looking forward to returning to Long Beach", commented Justin. "It's a great track and one that's very special for every Champ Car driver." He added, "We had a tough start to the season in Las Vegas and we'll be looking to put that behind us. We've got some work to do to get back on the pace, but last year at Long Beach we were very close, so that will be a plus as we prepare for the event. Hopefully we can have another good weekend here if everything works out."

The race starts at 1pm Pacific Time on Sunday, with pre-race coverage on Eurosport 2 currently scheduled to begin in the UK at 8.30pm BST.
