Audi Certified Champion RS 6 Team makes first appearance at Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course

Cleveland, OH. (June 24, 2004) - The dynamic duo of Randy Pobst and Michael Galati, drivers for the Audi Certified Pre-owned Champion RS 6 Team, are set to continue their winning streak this weekend at Mid-Ohio.

The SPEED World Challenge will make its third-consecutive appearance at
Mid-Ohio, although only Touring Car appeared in 2003. Five-time series Champion
and North Olmsted, Ohio resident Michael Galati is the defending SPEED GT race
winner (2002) and will shoot for his third overall World Challenge win at
Mid-Ohio this weekend. Galati holds the qualifying record for the World
Challenge GT Series at Mid-Ohio. He drove an Audi S4 in 2002 for Champion

World Challenge GT Reigning Champion, Randy Pobst, finished in first position
at the previous race at Lime Rock Park just four weeks ago. Pobst set the
fastest lap record at Mid-Ohio in the World Challenge GT series in 2002 driving
a Porsche 911 Cup.

Randy Pobst (Gainesville, GA). "My whole family, including myself, is from
Dayton, Ohio. I won from the pole the first four times I raced at Mid-Ohio in
Pro races and that's what I intend to do for Audi Certified Champion Racing.
Mid-Ohio is a varied circuit with a lot of quick rises and transitional turns.
It has always suited my style well."

Michael Galati (Olmsted, OH). "I love Mid-Ohio. It's such a great track and
I've had a lot of success there. We won last time we were there so hopefully
we can do it again. It's going to be tough though, with the additional weight
but we'll for sure give it our best shot. I'm excited to race there and I look
forward to seeing a lot of family and friends who live close by to Mid-Ohio."

Initial broadcast time for this weekend's SPEED World Challenge GT race is
scheduled for Sunday, June 27 at 1:00 p.m. (EDT).
