CHAMP CAR WORLD SERIES STATEMENT REGARDING FORD MOTOR COMPANY ENDING ITS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SERIES

INDIANAPOLIS (January 24, 2007) -- The following is a statement from the Champ Car World Series regarding today's decision from the Ford Motor Company that it would not return as a sponsor of Champ Car racing in 2007.

Champ Car President Steve Johnson statement:

"Today's decision was made from a business standpoint on both sides and in no way should tarnish the long legacy of success that the Ford Motor Company has established in Champ Car competition. We thank Ford for what it has done for the series, but we are continuing building a bright future for the series and are exploring a number of other options for a manufacturer partner,"
