Justin looks forward to Grand Prix of Montreal

The Grand Prix of Montreal takes place at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on Sunday 27 August.

Assessing his prospects for the weekend, Justin said "We did well in Montreal last year. We were in a position to win but, unfortunately, it didn't work out. Hopefully this year we'll be able to avoid some of the incidents that occurred in the chicane in 2005. We had a quick car last year, and we hope to have a quick car there this year as well. It's a track that lends itself to overtaking possibilities in the final chicane. It's also a fun track to drive. I enjoy it, and I'm looking forward to getting back there."

Once again, there will be no #10 car featuring for RuSPORT, as Cristiano da Matta continues his recovery from the serious injuries sustained when hitting a deer during testing at Elkhart Lake at the beginning of the month. Justin commented "This past weekend we went to Wiscounsin to visit Cristiano and his family. It was good to see them, and it was great to see that Cristiano is making good progress. I want to again wish him well. We'll see what we can do to put in a good result in Montreal, although we'll miss having Cristiano there with us."
