Champ Car Returns To Road America

4.048-mile circuit replaces Vegas oval
Classic venue back on the schedule
The Champ Car World Series will return to Road America in 2006 replacing the event previously scheduled for the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in late September. The 2006 race will mark the 24th Champ Car event at the 4.048-mile facility that is seen by many to be North America’s finest permanent road course layout. The track itself celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2005.
“From my first day as Champ Car President, I have been inundated by our fans, sponsors and teams to find a way to get back to Road America,” said Champ Car President Steve Johnson. “The passion the feedback showed for Road America led us to today’s announcement. Road America’s layout is a true test of driver skill and the circuit requires precision tuning by the teams.”
“Our new agreement gives us both a chance to rebuild the event to its former level of popularity and financial success. When we decided not to renew with Las Vegas Motor Speedway it provided the opening to finalize our deal,” continued Johnson.
“Our fans repeatedly ask for Champ Car and we are pleased to add the popular event to our schedule,” said Road America President and General Manager George Bruggenthies. “We are in the process of facility improvements, including a three-acre paddock expansion that will make the event even better for racers and spectators.”
Champ Car last raced at Road America in 2004 with Alex Tagliani taking the race win.

"You just don't mess with Jacques Villeneuve" - Murray Walker, 1997 Hungarian GP.
"When Jacques was with us, he was a very aggressive driver, fiercely competitive, mentally hard as nails. Very quick with it, very gifted. A bright fellow, undoubtedly, very intelligent. He was an absolutely born racing driver - look at the way he'd bang wheels with Michael, pass people on the outside, that kind of thing" -Sir Frank Williams on Jacques Villeneuve
"This year, with BMW, JV's going very well, and I'm pleased for him. Whether or not he'll get a drive next year I don't know, but I hope he does, he's an unusual, and very strong addition to the F1 community. A character." - Sir Frank Williams again on Jacques Villeneuve
