January 9, 2003

Monterrey, México, January 10th, 2003.- Starting next Tuesday, January 14th, tickets for the most exciting and expected event of the Mexican racing season, the third edition of the Monterrey Tecate-Telmex Grand Prix 2003 of the Bridgestone Presents The Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford, will go on sale. The race will take place at the spectacular temporary circuit at Fundidora Park in downtown Monterrey, in the state of Nuevo León, form March 21st to 23rd, 2003. The main attraction is having the three professional CART series - CART, Toyota Atlantic and Barber Pro- running the same weekend at the temporary 2.1 mile track, besides a full complement of Mexican series which will allow racing fans a weekend of enjoyment.

From the logistic perspective, the Tecate-Telmex Grand Prix 2003 will have a few changes in the grandstand location due to expansion of the Convention Center located in the Park, Cintermex. However, for this third edition of the Grand Prix -the event which set an attendance record in 2001 and had almost a quarter-million fans in 2002- the changes are limited to moving stands 6 and 7 across the pit straight leaving total seating capacity at 58,633, basically the same number as in the previous years.

The Organizing Committee of the Tecate-Telmex Grand Prix 2003, has announced 3-day tickets will go on sale for the weekend, including: practice and qualifying on Friday 21st, qualifying and support races on Saturday 22nd, and race day on Sunday 23rd. Tickets go on sale with an exclusive pre-sale program for Banamex (owned by Citibank) cardholders from January 14th to 25th. This pre-sale includes a 10% discount and a 3-months-without-interest payment plan for the owners of Mexico’s most widely used credit card. On January 26th, ticket sales opens to the general public.

Tickets can be purchased at the Ticketmaster centers, or at their internet site through Ticketmaster Online: www.ticketmaster.com.mx. Also, a special booth will be located at the Coca Cola Auditorium inside Fundidora Park in Monterrey.
