Justin heads down under in search of victory

The Champ Car World Series makes its annual trip to Australia this weekend for the Lexmark Indy 300 around the streets of Surfers Paradise on Queensland's Gold Coast. With two races to go Justin still leads the Bridgestone Passion for Excellence Award, based on drivers' fastest race laps. Though he's mathematically still in the hunt for the driver championship, the focus this weekend is on regaining runner-up spot from A.J. Allmendinger. Going into the event Justin is 11 points behind, so a podium or win is the aim.

In the four week gap since Road America Justin has kept busy, with a visit to Mexico City ahead of November's season finale, as well as helping RuSPORT to select a driver to replace Cristiano da Matta for the last two races of the season. Having been RuSPORT's sole driver since Cristiano's testing accident in August, Justin is looking forward to being able to share crucial set-up data with his new team-mate, the Australian driver Ryan Briscoe.
