KOREA EVENT REMOVED FROM 2006 CHAMP CAR WORLD SERIES SCHEDULE

INDIANAPOLIS (July 22, 2006) - The Champ Car World Series announced today that the inaugural Ansan Champ Car Grand Prix scheduled for October 15-17 in Ansan, South Korea has been removed from the series calendar..

The event will not take place as scheduled as part of the 2006 Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford calendar, as a number of factors have combined to prevent the series from holding the race on the yet-to-be-completed track in Ansan.

"It is regrettable that this event in Korea has failed despite our repeated efforts to bring it to fruition. We will not allow this setback to detract from what has been a very successful season" said Champ Car World Series co-owner Kevin Kalkhoven. "Despite the unfortunate situation regarding the Korea event, we intend to further develop our presence in Asia and the Pacific Rim, and are continuing to build toward our goal of conducting world-class events in these regions."
