A1GP World Cup of Motorsport has asked for FIA approval to move round seven of Season Four, A1GP Mexico City, back a week to 20-22 March to avoid a clash with a Radiohead concert held at the circuit.
Pete da Silva, CEO for A1GP, commented, “It is unfortunate we have had to move back A1GP Mexico City by one week, but this is necessary because of a clashing event at the track that incorporates a baseball stadium that doubles up as a concert venue. We are delighted it is still possible to race in Mexico City as this has always proved to be a popular and exciting race weekend for our fans.”
A1GP has visited Mexico every season with Fundidora Park in Monterrey being the track used in Season One and Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City in Seasons Two and Three. As this is a last minute change it is still subject to FIA approval as is the layout for the track. The new lay-out for the chicane has also been submitted to the FIA, and once approval is received the track officials are hoping to start work on the changes necessary for the track to be given its Grade Two licence for the event.
