Oschersleben, 16th September 2004 -- Due to budget problems Bruce Lorgere-Roux will not be driving for DAMS at Oschersleben (Germany) this weekend. He will be replaced by the 2003 FRV6 Champion and ex DAMS driver Jose-Maria Lopez for the meeting.

Jean-Paul Driot, CEO of DAMS : "It is very difficult to see Bruce's season stopped like that. Even if we have tried to find a solution we understood that it would not be possible for Oschersleben. Then we needed to have a driver that would bring big points to the team. We spoke with Jose and his management for this race, and they have been able to put together all the conditions to have Jose racing with us and so we reached an agreement quickly. Jose was nearly unbeatable in 2003 on this track and with his experience and his speed I am sure that he will bring precious points to the team."

Jose-Maria Lopez : "I am very happy to drive for DAMS this weekend. We had a fantastic season last year and I would be proud to help the Team and my 2 team mates to get good results here. We have had quite a lot of contact since I left in Italy, we have a very good relationship together and I feel very good here."
