CANCELLATION OF EVENTS FOR THE MOLSON INDY MONTREAL

We are saddened to have to announce the cancellation of Hankook Touring and Excellence Chrysler Formula 1600 Cup events scheduled for August 26, 27 and 28 which were to run on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve during the Montreal Molson Indy. Round 5 of the Hankook Touring Championship and Round 6 of the Excellence Chrysler Formula 1600 Cup will instead be run on the Sanair road circuit Saturday September 10th.

Contrary to some rumours, both series won't run because of a lack of available track time, this after stealing the show in 2004. Meeting with Autocourse during the Trois-Rivieres Grand Prix, the Molson Indy organizers confirmed Champ Car did not agree to reduce time allotted to the Trans-Am series, Pace Cars lapping sessions and Champ Car two-seater demonstrations despite several requests in the last couple of weeks.

However, we were pleased to learn Mr. Normand Legault, Molson Indy Montreal President, was impressed by the quality of the cars and of the show offered by both the Touring Hankook and Excellence Chrysler drivers in Trois-Rivieres, and hopes to play host to both series on the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in 2006.
