N.A-D.R should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Why do A1GP do heeps of races in asia? they should be going more into europe and america. maybe 4 rounds in europe, 2 round in america, then south africa, then u have surfers paradise, then 2 or 3 asian races. That would be a tast calendar.

I guess so... Would be cool though to get more of the classic european tracks on the calendar, a1gp would be so cool at them.

In an ideal world it would be nice to visit all countries that have cars entered in the series,(where possible), over a two year period. I know this will never happen, just a nice thought!

Yeah for sure. Like going to tracks like the one at China they did this year was a **** track, not made for A1GP. Would be awesome to see A1GP at SPA or something.

Indeed it would be great to see A1 GP at Spa or indeed any of the great european circuits like Monza, Silverstone and Monaco, but the series tends to avoid F1 circuits, because the series organisers know that direct comparissans will be made between A1 GP and F1/GP2 etc. A1 GP has distanced itself from being a F1 feeder series like GP2/WSR/IRL or Superleague and is trying to establish itself as a alternative to F1. Whether or not it is suceeding in that quest is debatable, but thats another story.

this is the 2009-2010 thread, not the 2008-2009 thread

Again: Jan Lammers did mention MONTREAL a lot in the latest podcast.

Also, Hockenheim may be available soon... they made a 5 million euro loss from the last F1 GP, and basically don't want to do F1 anymore.

And you will find this happen all over Europe.. circuits getting fed up with F1 and the huge sums they have to pay in advance to host a race.

F1 = Destined to be Asia Pacific and Middle East?
A1GP = The WORLD cup of motorsport.

I have been watching F1 since 1988 but with dog ugly cars, silly proposals like medals instead of points and circuits that produce dull races like the Singapore GP, I know which I now prefer. If Montreal joins Surfers on the A1GP calender I wonder how many others will follow suit.

I think it would be a major coup if A1GP can secure races in North America, France and Germany.

F1 is growing in the Middle East but it might lose out in North America and Europe to A1GP.

F1 is going down hill, but the fans just stay with it no matter what the races are like.

A1GP will start getting the host for the favourite tracks in america and Europe hopefully. Then A1GP will be super popular :P

Hold on, I thought that a lot of the problem regarding the 08-09 season dates was that A1GP was starting to ask venues for something like 25% of an F1 sanction fee, simply because they have to recoup the massive startup costs.

OK, it might be cheaper, but it's still a heck of a lot of money.

Until the (paying) spectator numbers warrant it, a European venue would still baulk at those sort of figures. Why 2 rounds for China? - government money - same old path as F1.

I've split the posts about the Brazil/TBA speculation for this season into a different thread. Comments about the future and specifically 09/10 season can continue here.

Oh I can see a German round happen again, especially in a strategic place like Hockenheim that is also close to the French, Dutch and Swiss borders
