INDIANAPOLIS (March 18, 2003) -- The panel lineup for the Champ Car Town Meeting that will take place in Long Beach, California on March 24 has grown by one person as the series announced Wednesday that SPEED Channel President Jim Liberatore will join the program.

Liberatore, who oversees the cable network that carries the majority of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford events, will join CART President and CEO Christopher R. Pook, Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach President and CEO Jim Michaelian, Champ Car driver Alex Tagliani and Rocketsports Racing team owner Paul Gentilozzi on the panel discussion, which will be hosted by SPEED Channel race analyst and former Trans Am champion Tommy Kendall.

Liberatore took over the reins of the SPEED Channel less than three years ago and has already helped transform it into one of the fastest growing cable networks in the country. The series has not only added the Champ Car World Series to its lineup, but also has the rights to Formula 1 and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series among its offerings.

Over 600 fans have already responded in the five days since the Town Meeting was announced, securing their free tickets for the forum, which will take place at The Grand at Willow Street Centre, 4101 E. Willow St. in Long Beach. Ticket requests are still being taken through the official website of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford, www.champcarworldseries.com.
