Defending World Champion, Canadian hero Paul Tracy will drive the # 1 'Indeck Forsythe Racing' car, Canadian Patrick Carpentier the # 32 'Indeck Forsythe Racing' car and new team member Rodolfo Lavin the # 3 'Corona Forsythe Racing' entry.

Before the Season's first race at Long Beach California on April 18th, the Team and Drivers will undertake a busy testing schedule, visiting Sebring, Homestead and Fontana to shake down the race cars and to prepare for the start of the Season and the demanding street course at Long Beach California.

Paul Tracy is looking forward to getting back into his race car. "Its been a long winter. I'm fit and ready to go racing and determined to defend my Championship. ChampCar is the greatest Series and I look forward to racing in front of full grandstands at Long Beach on April 18th and to repeat my winning streak in California."

"Now that the final details of running three cars has been worked out by the Team I'm really looking forward to testing next week and the first race, and working for the Series and challenging for the Championship" says Patrick Carpentier.

Rodolfo Lavin had his seat fitting last week, "I'm so impressed with the race shop and the Team's engineers and crew guys. This is a great opportunity for me to work with the best Team in the Series and with such experienced drivers, Champion Paul Tracy and Patrick Carpentier. I look forward to the first race in Long Beach and doing my best for the Team and my Sponsor Corona - and of course to racing at home in Mexico very soon."
