Python REGEX ignore case at the beginning of the sentence and take the rest

I have this kind of results:

ª!è[008:58:049]HTTP_CLI:0 - Line written in...

And I want to ignore all the beginning characters like
and get only:
HTTP_CLI:0 - Line written in...
but in a simple regex line.

but is taking the extended ASCII characters plus the time and is not ignoring it, is doing the opposite...

Any help?
