Stefan Johansson Joins ADT/Champion

  (Pompano Beach, Florida) 24 June 2002 -- Champion Racing owner Dave Maraj announced today that Stefan Johansson is set to return to the ADT/Champion Audi R8 team beginning with this weekend's American Le Mans Series Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio.

Johansson, who will share Champion's points-leading Audi prototype with current Drivers Championship points leader Johnny Herbert, is no stranger to the ADT/Champion
Audi R8, having been part of the crew which finished a fine second at this year's ALMS season opener at the 12 Hours of Sebring.

"I'm very pleased and excited to be back in the saddle of the ADT/Champion Audi, working with Dave Maraj and his excellent team," said Johansson. "The Audi R8 is the best car out there, and I'm really looking forward to more good results with the Champion guys this season."

"We are very fortunate to have Stefan Johansson back with us in the ADT/Champion Audi," said Champion Vice President Don Skuta. "He did a great job for us at Sebring, and he has the motivation and the skill it will take to keep Champion in the American Le Mans Series title hunt."

Although JJ Lehto had been previously nominated for the position left vacant by the recent departure of Andy Wallace, issues relating to Lehto's current contractual obligations with another team could not be resolved.
