ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (July 8, 2000) - Key Motorsport Formula 2000 Championship contender Marc Antoine Camirand failed to take advantage of a well earned pole position in today's US Formula 2000 race at Road America, Wisconsin.

Camirand and Aaron Justus started to pull away from the rest of the field as a crash filled race took place behind them when on lap four, Camirand made the ill fated move.

"I am disappointed with myself," explained Camirand. " I tried to pass Justus on the outside of Canada Corner and there was not enough grip for me to finish the pass. Aaron was fair, he gave me some room, but it was not a good move on my part. The car was excellent, I could really do what I wanted."

The Key Motorsport No.44 Van Diemen of Peter Walsh, finished 9th after a steady charge up the field from a 19th starting position.

Daniel Muniz, driving the third Key Motorsport Van Diemen, finished 10th after starting 17th.

Tomorrow's second race will be held at 8:00am due to rescheduling from previous rain delays during the day.
