Champ Car Suspends Driver Dan Clarke From Champ Car Grand Prix of Belgium

Driver's Status will be Re-evaluated Before Next Event in Holland

Zolder, Belgium (August 24, 2007) -- Following an incident in this morning's practice session, Dan Clarke has been barred from participating in this weekend's Champ Car Grand Prix of Belgium. Champ Car Race Director Tony Cotman will make a decision one week from today as to Clarke's status for the Bavaria Beer Champ Car Grand Prix of Holland Presented by Audi, Hertz, Gent and Pioneer.

"This morning's incident was totally unacceptable and completely avoidable," said Cotman. "Dan was already on probation after previous incidents in San Jose which helped lead me to my decision today. After the weekend is complete and I have a time to review the incident without the raw emotion of the moment, I will make a decision as to any further penalties against Clarke."
