DUBLIN, Ohio (June 26, 2003) - The Champ Car Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio will run August 7-10, but fans of the 2.258-mile Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course can see the open-wheel rockets take to the Lexington, Ohio track on Monday, June 30, to test for the upcoming race.

Many of the Bridgestone Presents the CART Champ Car World Series powered by Ford competitors have committed to the test day, including defending race champion Patrick Carpentier of Player's/Forsythe Racing, Bruno Junquiera and Sebastien Bourdais of Newman/Haas Racing, Hilliard, Ohio's Team Rahal driver Michel Jourdain, Jr., and Fernandez Racing's Adrian Fernandez, who won last week's CART Champ Car World Series event in Portland, Oregon.

"Mid-Ohio is excited to make this event open to the public," said Michelle Trueman Gajoch, President of TrueSports, Inc. "This is an excellent opportunity for our loyal Champ Car fans to get energized about the upcoming race, and Mid-Ohio is pleased to donate the proceeds to a very worthy cause."
