January 10, 2003


Junqueira

SEBRING, Fla. (January 10, 2003) --- Brazilian Bruno Junqueira participated in his first test day with Newman/Haas Racing yesterday at the 1.65-mile road course at Sebring International Raceway at was able to complete more than 250 trouble-free miles in the new Lilly Ford/Cosworth-Lola-Bridgestone package that the team will prepare for the 2003 Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford season.

"For my first day of on-track running with the team, we were able to accomplish a lot," said Junqueira. "It's hard to compare your progress when there is only one other car on track but the day went smoothly. The track seemed to slow down from the previous day but we will run again on Friday and continue to make progress. I didn't notice much of a difference with the reduced horsepower. The driveability of the 2003 package was good. Today was just the first of many test days with the team and I am looking forward to more time with everyone before the season starts. Newman/Haas Racing is obviously the team to beat this season and I'm looking forward to the challenge."

Junqueira will begin his third season in the Championship Auto Racing Team's (CART) premier series in 2003 and first at NHR. Junqueira was the runner-up in the 2002 CART Championship to NHR driver and fellow Belo Horizonte, Brazil native Cristiano da Matta after winning races in Japan and Denver, finishing on the podium six times and earning four pole positions.

"To be able to complete as many miles as we did on our first day with Bruno was quite an accomplishment considering we also had to get a new driver comfortable in the cockpit," said Brian Lisles, General Manager of Newman/Haas Racing. "He has been working well with our engineers and crew. Everyone is excited to be working towards the new season and hopefully carrying over our success from last year."

Junqueira will complete his first test with the test on Friday, January 10. The next scheduled test for Newman/Haas Racing will take place at the Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca road course January 25-27.
