Justin aiming high at Watkins Glen

After six ovals in succession the IndyCar Series now tackles a mix of road and street course events starting with Sunday's Camping World Grand Prix at Watkins Glen. The 3.37 mile permanent road course in upstate New York is a favourite of Justin's. He narrowly missed out on pole position in 2008 and was forced to retire with gearbox problems in the race. In a recent test he was just one tenth of a second off last year's pole time and he's keen to show what he and Dale Coyne Racing can do this weekend.

"I've been looking forward to Watkins Glen for weeks!" said Justin. "It's a real driver's track - quite technical, very fast and satisfying when you get it right. We know that in the next few road and street races we can remind people what this team is really capable of. We don't have much practice time here, but our test a few weeks ago went very well. We're definitely aiming for a podium finish for the Z-Line Designs team this weekend."

Justin has a lot more to say about Watkins Glen in the Track Guides section of www.justinwilson.co.uk, while a new interview with Justin on JW TV provides an insight into some of his recent oval experiences.

Practice and qualifying at Watkins Glen take place on Saturday, with live TV coverage of Sunday's race from 1pm (6pm BST) on ABC in the US and on Sky Sports 2 in the UK.
