The official title of the championship is the Champ Car World Series, but until now it has been predominantly North American-based. How important is it to spread the series across Europe?
It's very important, and not only in Europe. To be called a world series, you have to be competing in all the major markets in the world. Champ Cars race in China, they have very well-supported events in Australia and Mexico, there are a lot of Canadian rounds coming up too and now two in Europe. Hopefully we will have three or four in Europe in the next couple of years; certainly we are looking at running a third one next year. We have a lot of European drivers taking part too. I think we are going to see the Champ Car World Series as exactly what it says – a worldwide, global series that's gaining in popularity.
So it's onwards and upwards from here?
I think so. There's always room for improvement and the management know that, but they are serious about looking at things they can improve. I think we will see year-on-year growth, which is all we can expect.
