TOPEKA, Kan. (Nov. 6, 2003) -- The broadcast times for the SCCA Speed World Challenge Touring Car and Speed World Challenge GT Championship Round Nine races as part of Le Petit Le Mans Oct. 15-17 at Road Atlanta will initially air at 4:00 p.m. (EST) and 5:00 p.m. (EST), respectively, Saturday, Nov. 8 on Speed Channel. Both races will also be rebroadcast.

In SCCA Speed Touring Car, the two-car TriPoint Motorsports team of Jeff Altenburg and Shauna Marinus finished second and third, respectively, in the Speed Touring Car race at the Road Atlanta in June. However, Altenburg and Marinus are hoping to improve on that performance, gunning for the top two spots this time out. Altenburg is coming off a win at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and, in four of the last five races, Marinus has just missed starting from the pole position by a combined total of 0.545-second. With a win, Marinus would become the first women to win a Speed World Challenge Touring Car race.

In SCCA Speed GT, Bill Auberlen leads the SCCA Speed World Challenge GT Drivers' Championship and hopes to clinch the title at Le Petit Le Mans. However, Randy Pobst, who is second in points, may have something to say about that when his Champion Racing Audi RS 6 takes to the 12-turn, 2.54-mile circuit. Mike Fitzgerald, who won the Speed GT race in June, is gunning for his fourth career win at Road Atlanta. In 2000, Fitzgerald won the Speed Touring Car and Speed GT races.

The SCCA Speed World Challenge Championships are made-for-television series featuring some of the best drivers and production cars in the world, utilizing some of the best aftermarket parts the industry has to offer.
