Second 2003 Town Meeting to take place in Long Beach.

INDIANAPOLIS (March 13, 2003) -- Continuing with the plan to bring key figures in the Champ Car World Series to the people where events are to be run, CART will conduct another event in its rapidly-growing Town Meeting series as it visits Long Beach -- site of the April 11-13 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach -- on Monday, March 24.

The Town Meeting concept began last year in Columbus, Ohio and gives local fans a chance to ask questions of a star-studded panel comprised of drivers, owners and executives of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford. This year's meeting schedule began with a trip to Portland where the venue had to be changed in order to meet the large demand from the fans.

Long Beach will see another blue-ribbon gathering of Champ Car principals including 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. The evening will be hosted by SPEED Channel race analyst and former Trans Am champion Tommy Kendall.

The town meeting will get underway at 7 p.m. on March 24th at The Grand at Willow Street Centre, 4101 E. Willow St. in Long Beach. Fans can register to receive 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.
