PORTLAND, OR. (July 23, 2004) - The Audi Certified Champion RS 6 Team also continues their back-to-back stretch at Portland International Raceway. After a grueling race at Infineon Raceway, both cars have been repaired and prepped to defend their lead in the Manufacturer's Championship in the SPEED World Challenge GT Series.

This is only the second time the SPEED World Challenge Series has appeared at Portland International Raceway. In 2001, Champion Racing competed with two Audi S4's driven by Michael Galati and Derek Bell. Galati won the race and also set a track record, 1:23.694 (83.350).

The SCCA SPEED World Challenge GT race at Portland International Raceway, Round Five of the 2004 Championship, is scheduled for Sunday, July 25, at 10:55 a.m. (PDT). The race will be broadcast the same day via tape-delay on SPEED Channel at 1 p.m. (EDT).

Randy Pobst (Gainesville, GA). "Portland is a great place to race. The people seem to be real race fans here. As for our Audi RS 6's we should be more competitive here than Infineon. It's supposed to be real hot here so the heat might generate some quattro traction initiatives. We'll continue to give 100% working to keep the Manufacturer's Championship lead."

Michael Galati (Olmsted, OH). "I think last time we were here in 2001 we won the race so I'm happy to be back here. It's different this year because of the weight additions to our RS 6's but we should be more competitive than we were last weekend at Infineon Raceway. The Champion guys have done a great job in getting my car back up to 100%."
