Justin looks forward to Circuit Mont-Tremblant

With just a couple of days to re-group after Cleveland, Justin and the CDW/RSPORTS team have journeyed north to Canada for this weekend's race around the 2.65 mile Circuit Mont-Tremblant in St. Jovite. Champ Cars last raced at Mont-Tremblant in 1968 when Mario Andretti won from pole position.

The contrast between Cleveland's wide open airport track and this traditional road course could hardly be greater. Set amongst the scenic Laurentian Mountains in Quebec, "Le Circuit" provides a demanding, 15 turn blast through the forest, taking in some dramatic changes of elevation and blindingly fast corners. Justin was immediately on the pace when he tested there in May and can't wait to get back in the car.

"I think it's a great track", said Justin. "It's quick and very challenging, which is something I really like. It should be a great event and I'm looking forward to it. We were quick in the #9 CDW car during our test at Mont-Tremblant, so hopefully the race weekend will go just as well, if not better. We hope we can qualify in the front and have a good race."

Sunday's race starts at 2pm Eastern Time (7pm BST). Fans in the UK can tune in live on Eurosport 2, where pre-race coverage starts at 6.30pm.
