Montreal, PQ - The Key Motorsport Formula 2000 Racing Team is ready to go after a six-week break since their last race in Indianapolis. The break allowed all cars for Marc-Antoine Camirand, Daniel Muniz, and Peter Walsh to be rebuilt for rounds five and six at the Grand Prix of Road America, to be held on July 7th and 8th.
"We have been ready since Wednesday for the trip to Wisconsin," explained team manager Yvan Turcotte. "That's a good feeling, so the guys are going to take a well deserved few days off to recharge their batteries."
The drivers have taken the break in the schedule as a time to train hard in preparation for next weekend's race.
Daniel Muniz, who resides in Costa Rica and is presently 10th in the championship standings, took the opportunity to begin an extensive training program at home.
"Daniel has been undergoing a strenuous exercise and diet program and is returning to the series fit and determined to run with the front pack," explained Key Motorsport team owner Steve Djelebian.
Peter Walsh, currently 2nd in the championship standings with 79 points, has been busy in Ireland throughout the break and will be arriving in North America on Sunday, July 2nd. The Irish Driver of the Year is been under a torrid training regime to prepare for the exciting and demanding Road America track.
Marc-Antoine Camirand, 3rd in the championship with 77 points, has been regularly karting in his hometown of Trois Rivieres in preparation for the event as well. Camirand feels that he needs podium finishes in order to stay in the hunt for the championship.
"I really need to finish on the podium in both races to stay in the hunt for the championship. We have been very consistent for most of the season, the problem is that the front runners have been just as good at finishing well as we have been."
