A1GP Returns to Brands Hatch

A1GP World Cup of Motorsport is heading back to Brands Hatch, for the fourth year in succession and will hold the 2008/09 season finale there on 1 – 3 May 2009. The Kent circuit has played host to three superb A1GP events so far, with the inaugural race in September 2005 and the Season Two and Three finales.

A1GP Chief Executive Officer, Pete da Silva, said: “We are pleased to announce A1GP is returning to Brands Hatch for a fourth consecutive season. We have worked hard to put together an interesting calendar of challenging circuits for the new A1GP Powered by Ferrari cars, and Brands Hatch will provide an exciting final venue.”

Following the delay to the start of the season it has not been possible to find an alternative date to accommodate A1GP Mugello, Italy in this year’s calendar, therefore this event will now be taken out of the Season Four schedule.

Team testing begins at Donington Park this week with two days scheduled on the 9 and 11 September. The second team test in the UK has now also been confirmed for Snetterton in Norfolk on 23 – 24 September 2008, and there will also be a one day test at this track on 1 October. The season opener will be A1GP Zandvoort, Netherlands, 4 – 5 October.
