The turbocharged scream machines of the CART Champ Car World Series will be coming to the home of Rock and Roll July 3-5 for the Cleveland Grand Prix, but before the stars and cars of the series hit town, fans will get a chance to delve inside the minds of some of the decision makers of the series as the Champ Car Town Meeting series visits Cleveland on June 2nd.

The Town Meeting series is essentially a panel discussion where fans can participate in an uncensored question-and-answer session with key members of the CART staff, race officials as well as some of the drivers that will participate in the July race. The series began last year in Columbus and has met with great success as fans have come out in droves to get the inside information on the Champ Car World Series.

The Town Meeting, which comes in advance of what will be the historic first-ever night race at Burke Lakefront Airport, will feature CART President and CEO Christopher R. Pook, IMG Motorsports President Bud Stanner and SPEED Channel President Jim Liberatore as well as the winner of last year’s Cleveland Grand Prix Patrick Carpentier. Also joining the panel will be Toyota Atlantic standout Joey Hand, who drives for Chesterland-based DSTP Motorsports. Champ Car Vice-President of Communications Adam Saal will be the evening’s host.

The Cleveland meeting will take place June 2nd at the Grand Ballroom of the Sheraton, located in the Cleveland City Center at 777 St. Clair Avenue. Fans can register for free tickets to the event by going to the official website of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford, www.champcarworldseries.com.
