SIMONA DE SILVESTRO READY FOR EDMONTON

EDMONTON, AB (July 22, 2010) - - Just days after enjoying her best finish of her young IndyCar career, a 9th place at last weekend's Honda Indy Toronto, Team Stargate Worlds/HVM Racing's, Simona De Silvestro now turns her attention to this weekend's Honda Indy Edmonton. The recent result helped Simona in her chase for the 2010 "Rookie of the Year" and moved her up 1 position in the Championship standings. Simona and crew are looking forward to having another good result this weekend and continue the positive momentum they left Toronto with.

As was the case for the Toronto race, this weekend represents a return for Simona to the Edmonton 1.96 mile temporary street/airport course. Simona raced here back in 2007 as part of a double-header Atlantic race. She is hoping that the experience gained at these two races will serve her well and add to a successful event, and this time she's piloting her No. 78 Stargate Resistance Dallara/Honda entry.

This Sunday's Honda Indy Edmonton will be broadcast live at 5:00 pm EST on Versus television. Additional coverage is available at www.indycar.com for live timing and video, while radio coverage will be provided by the IMS Networks and Sirius Channel 221 and XM channel 145.

Simona De Silvestro, Driver No. 78: "Even though we struggled a bit at our last race, we did leave there on a positive note with a great result and I'm hoping that this weekend picks up where we left off in Toronto and progress throughout the weekend. It's going to be a long and difficult race and the speeds are fast but I'm very excited about it and looking forward to hopefully having another good weekend."

Keith Wiggins, HVM Racing Team Principal: "Another great Canadian venue and we're looking forward to great fans and another good result."

Imran Safiulla, Team Stargate Worlds Team Principal: "We hope to continue our positive momentum from Toronto. The Edmonton track is a very demanding one and we hope to be up to the challenge."
