Justin eager to get back on track in Portland

Justin is looking forward to racing again this weekend at Portland International Raceway in Oregon, after more than a month spent training, testing and helping to promote Champ Car's European events. The sweeping 1.9 mile road course is one of Justin's favourites: in 2006 he was runner-up and the year before he led much of the race before retiring with mechanical failure.

"It's going to be good to get back to racing again", said Justin. "I enjoy the Portland venue. We've been quick there in the past, so I hope that I can continue to be strong there and get a win in the #9 CDW/RSPORTS car." He added: "It's been useful to have this break since our last race in Houston. We've had the chance to get in some very valuable testing time to continue our learning process on the new Champ Car DP01. We've made some good progress and I think that we're in a good position to achieve better results in the next few races."

Viewers in the UK can watch the Portland race live on Eurosport 2 on Sunday, while Race Director on www.champcar.ws also provides video coverage and live timing. Pre-race coverage on Eurosport 2 is scheduled to start at 20:30 BST, followed by the race itself at 21:00.
