Rocketsports Ready To Run In 2007

EAST LANSING, Michigan (January 22, 2007) -- This week marks the beginning of the 2007 Champ Car World Series season as the first of three Champ Car Open-Tests gets underway and Rocketsports Racing heads down to Sebring, Florida to participate in the three-day test with the new Champ Car Panoz DP01.

While the team took delivery just days before Christmas, the team had just about three weeks to get ready for the test with their new DP01 racecar. The truck left the East Lansing-based shop on Saturday, in preparations for running one car on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at Sebring International Roadway. After being in the shop for seat fittings, Champ Car veteran Alex Tagliani will be climbing into the cockpit as the driver for the three-day test with Rocketsports.

On track activities begin on Tuesday morning at 10:45 a.m. CST, with a session lasting until 1:45 p.m. The Champ Cars, who will be sharing testing time with the ALMS series, will return out on track for another session from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday schedule will see the Champ Car's on track from 9:45 a.m. -- 12:00 p.m. and from 2:00 -- 3:30 p.m. The ALMS cars will not be running on Thursday, giving the Champ Car's the entire day to run from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
