Knight teams again with Block for Trois-Rivieres.

August 2, 2002 Englewood, CO -- KnightHawk Racing's co-owner and driver Steve Knight will once again team with Chad Block for this weekend's Le Grand Prix deTrois- Rivieres in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada.

The duo will take to the 1.52-mile, 11-turn street circuit today for Practice and Qualifying Sessions and again on Saturday for a morning Warm-Up and race at 2:45pm EDT. This is Block's 4th paring with Knight in the team's #11 Gestetner/DNTLWorks MG Lola 675 LMP.

The 3-hour timed event will be broadcast live on the Speed Channel beginning at 2:45pm EDT - immediately following a 30-minute Speed Channel review of the first half of the ALMS season that begins at 2:00pm EDT. The mid-season review will include highlights, interviews and analysis of the first five races of this year's championship season.

"I always look forward to racing in Canada -- the people and the fans are great," said Steve Knight. "Trois-Rivieres is such a beautiful city and I'm anxious to see the KnightHawk car speeding down the streets. We've sorted out all of the 'gremlins' that have plagued us for the last few races and I'm confident that we'll have a good result on Saturday."

"Steve and Mel called me on Wednesday night and asked me to race with the team this weekend," said the Gestetner-sponsored Chad Block. "I can't imagine better news for me as Thursday was my birthday and I can't think of a better way to celebrate than to race with the KnightHawk crew. I can't wait for the race on Saturday, and by then we'll know how far we have come as a team since I started with them."

The team is very happy and proud for the support of teammate Block by Gestetner.
