Champ Car makes its long-awaited return to Europe this week with back-to-back events in Belgium (26th August) and Holland (2nd September). First up is Zolder in Belgium, the famous 2.622 mile road course which regularly hosted Formula 1 in the 70s and early 80s. A week later the series visits Assen in the Netherlands.

"It's fantastic that Champ Car is back in Europe", said Justin. "I'm looking forward to seeing more British fans in the paddock. A lot of friends, family and Justin Wilson plc Investors are coming too, so it will be great to have so much support."

Both tracks are new to Justin and he's looking forward to the challenge. "Zolder looks like it is going to be a lot of fun to drive", he commented. "The photos and computer simulators show that it's quick in some places and very technical in others. Hopefully we'll find a good set-up early on and bring home a decent result for CDW and our partners".

Justin talks in more detail about Champ Car's trip to Europe in his pre-race interview on JW TV at www.justinwilson.co.uk.

Practice and first qualifying at Zolder takes place this Friday, with final qualifying on Saturday and the race itself on Sunday at 1pm UK time. For those who can't make it to Belgium, Eurosport 2 has live TV coverage, while Race Director on www.champcar.ws offers live timing and video throughout the weekend.
