Bowmanville, Ont. (September 25, 2002) -- As the Grand-Am Cup Series prepares for its ninth round of racing at Mosport International Raceway, September 28-29, Hyundai Motorsports members are looking forward to racing in their homeland for the second time this season.

With only two races remaining in the 2002 season, this weekend's Mosport race will play a vital role in determining who will win the championships.

Jacques Guénette, of Terrebonne, Qc, joins American Steven Gorriaran in the Hyundai Tiburon/Hyundai Motorsports #6 car. While Peter MacLeod will team-up with Wade Gaughran in car #14 for the quest of the victory.

Mosport is a track with a lot of elevation change, and a mix of high and medium speed corners. It is hard to find the right setups for a race track like this," said team manager Ron Matthews, "but I am confidant we'll do very well," he concluded.

The racing excitement will get underway at Mosport International Raceway this Friday with practice and qualifying sessions. Saturday will feature the running of the Sunoco Ultra 94 presents the Grand-Am Cup Mosport Three Hour at 3:00 p.m.
