After just a couple of days to debrief with the CDW team following their podium finish in Portland, Justin is now in Cleveland for this weekend's race around the Burke Lakefront Airport on the shores of Lake Erie.

Justin is hopeful of better luck this year than on his two previous trips to the city's temporary race track. In 2004 his race ended following contact at the infamous turn 1 on the opening lap, while last year he spent the race working his way back up through the field from 16th to 7th after an off in qualifying. Though the event hasn't been the scene of past successes, he's still looking forward to this weekend.

"I've always enjoyed driving at Cleveland", comments Justin. "I like the unique challenge of being on an airport circuit because it's fast, flowing and fun to drive. It's also quite technical in terms of set-up and it has very few reference points for braking and corner entry. I'm expecting it to be very competitive. Sebastien, Paul, A.J. and Cristiano are all going to be quick, but I hope that the CDW team can come out on top."
