Tagliani to take seventh position on starting grid for the Molson Indy Vancouver.

Rocketsports driver Alex Tagliani was seventh quickest in the second qualifying session for the Molson Indy Vancouver, with a lap time of 1:01.816 and speed of 103.721 mph, 166.922 km/h. "It was an okay day for the Rocketsports team, but not as good as it could've been," said Tagliani. "We made some changes, which ended up making the car too stiff. I came in, corrected things and was able to finish seventh today, which is not as quick as we were yesterday."

The Rocketsports crew returned to the Champ Car paddock to rework the setup on the #33 Johnson Controls Lola in preparation for Tagliani's ninth top-ten start of the season. "We'll make some adjustments and expect more from the car for tomorrow's race," concluded Tagliani.

SPECIAL NOTE
The Rocketsports team is joined this weekend by Canadian Toyota Atlantics driver Jonathon Macri, as part of the Champ Car mentorship program. On race day, the team will also be joined by Ironman Triathlete Peter Reid, who will attend the Molson Indy Vancouver to cheer on fellow Quebecois, Alex Tagliani. Look for the round-up of athletes in the Johnson Controls hospitality area or in the Rocketsports pit.
