CENTENNIAL, Colo. (March 5, 2002)-SCCA Pro Racing announced today that the Speed World Challenge GT race, originally scheduled April 5-7 at Miami, has been cancelled. Although the CART FedEx Championship Series, the American Le Mans Series and Raceworks, LLC have negotiated a deal to hold the event October 4-6, the Speed World Challenge will have no involvement due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding the 2002 Grand Prix of the Americas.

"There has been a lot of speculation regarding this event from the get-go, and the latest round of changes has forced us to withdraw the Speed World Challenge GT series from the event," said Mitch Wright, Vice President and General Manager of SCCA Pro Racing.

"We apologize for the announcement which went out last week regarding GT that stated it was definitely on the event. At that point, that was the case. We're unsure of our status given new information that we have received, and will not continue to string our teams and sponsors along. It's unfortunate, but there will be no World Challenge on the streets of Miami in 2002.

"We apologize for the extreme inconvenience this has caused our teams, sponsors and fans."
