Justin looks forward to Molson Grand Prix of Toronto

Justin heads north to Toronto this weekend for the first of three Canadian races on the Champ Car schedule. After the disappointment of a mechanical failure at Cleveland, he will be working flat out with the #9 CDW team to repeat last year's race-winning performance on the challenging street circuit around Exhibition Place.

Six races into the 2006 Champ Car World Series things are hotting up with an intense mid-season battle involving Justin, Newman-Haas' Sebastien Bourdais and Forsythe's A.J. Allmendinger. Justin has visited the podium four times in the first six events, but needs race wins in his fight for the driver championship.

"Obviously I got my first Champ Car win here last year for CDW and RuSPORT so I've got fond memories of the event", said Justin. "It's one of the toughest races on the calendar in terms of set-up, because of the mix of fast flowing corners and tight bumpy turns as well as the different track surfaces. The balance of the car changes all the time as the track rubbers in and that also keeps everyone on their toes." Reflecting on his season so far, Justin added, "We've shown a lot of potential over the first six races, but haven't been able to convert that into a win yet. It won't be easy, but we'll be working hard to try and repeat last year's result."
