Justin aiming high in Monterrey

Just a few days after his eventful race to 5th place in Houston, Justin is now in Monterrey, Mexico preparing for Sunday's race around the city's Fundidora Park circuit. After the bumps of Houston the first road course event of the season will come as welcome relief to the drivers, but the event will still be a challenge. Last year temperatures reached 46C (115F) and the cars are a handful around a tight circuit that lacks grip.

"There's not much grip here because of the type of asphalt and because it doesn't get used much so there's a lot of dust", explains Justin. "The track does grip up as we lay tyre rubber down over the three days, but that creates a lot more set-up challenges. I'm really looking forward to it though. I've been training hard to prepare as much as possible for the heat. It will be my third time there - in 2004 I qualified third and last year I qualified second - so I'm hoping to continue that trend at the weekend."
