Alain Prost racing in Canada again!

I received the following news release for publishing:


The organizers of the Challenge sur glace Damafro are proud to confirm the rumor which has been floating around for some time. Alain Prost will be back to defend his title for the sixth edition of the Sherbrooke event.

It's aboard a flashy Toyota Corolla (number 7) of Team ORECA that the Professor will slide on the famous Bertrand-Fabi circuit renowned to be the fastest in its category. Alain Prost will team up again this year with Philippe De Korsak and they aim for nothing less than the podium. Last year, this duo finished first at the end of the Saturday races and second at the end of Sunday. Prost is actually second in the overall ranking after 12 events raced in France, which places him only 36 points behind the leader Yvan Muller.

As the 2003 edition, the Challenge is still an off-championship race. "We are not going to be a Andros Trophy race. We have developed an unique car race on ice concept and we have the most interesting plate of cars, thanks to Max Mamers" specified Dany Sévigny, president. The Andros Trophy is one of the most prestigious car race on ice in the world. The Challenge sur glace Damafro 2004 will offer a most spectacular show for the motor sports fans."

So far the press release from Canada - I have been asked about the sponsors of Alain Prost in Andros Trophy. For those who are interested in all this, I give you the following links to the official Toyota France Press Releases in PDF format (the files are very big, I propose you save it with a right-click on the link)!
