A week before the final on the Brands Hatch circuit in England next weekend, the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport Championship was on display in London yesterday in no less a place than Regent Street, one of the most prestigious thoroughfares of the British capital.
It looked like a pit lane as cars from the 22 nations entered in the championship were on display. Throughout the day motor racing enthusiasts were in seventh heaven in London. 14 drivers were interviewed on a huge stage while the best moments of the 2007/08 races were shown on giant screens and national boutiques on the street displayed their wares.
Music groups followed one another in quick succession much to the delight of the spectators. A1 Team France used this unique occasion to launch a competition, which will end next Saturday.
Yesterday, a question was hidden on the bodywork of its car. All contestants can send their answer to a1gp.com by clicking on the French flag. A draw in Brands Hatch will allow the winner to get Loïc Duval’s signed overalls. Good luck!
Nicolas Prost: “ I spent a fantastic day entirely dedicated to motor sport with our fans and car racing lovers. On the circuits our time is a bit limited and it’s difficult to answer all requests. I was very happy to be able to spend time with all the people who’ve supported us. This presentation has boosted our morale, and we’ll do our very best to finish in second place in the championship next weekend.”
