Matski has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Safety my rear-end! has nobody ever noticed the 'motorsport is dangerous' signs up at race tracks?. if A1GP is to be the World Cup of Motorsport it needs some serious machinery, it'll attract better driver's who can do more with the machinery, which will lead to more interest and in a few years if they keep it up maybe winning the A1 Grand Prix of Nations will be a highly coveted thing... or maybe not. Either way this is a definate step in the right direction.

I think this should be a good thing. Just as long as the racing isn't affected. I also like the idea of A2GP. It'll give the teams somewhere to train their up and coming drivers . Even though the standard of the current drivers will have risen by 2008, what about the new drivers that will come through in the future?

Hmmm, forget the new car being the tendered Lola champcar, at the end of this year there'll be 20 plus existing champcar Lola chassis going spare which with suitable mods (assuming any would be needed) would fit the bill for a 700hp powered A1 car very nicely as it's already putting out that kind of power...

I hope they dont actually look like old Champcars though, I kinda like the A1 GP car shape.

I dont mind them using the chassis if its going to keep costs at a minimum, but my initial thoughts to A1GP using that bodywork, wings set up would be no. I prefer them with a higher engine cover as they do now, it does help the cars stand out with their countrys liverys. The nose section is ok, probably a bit better than the current one, but the rear wing, no, keep the current design.

Maybe im just being picky!

Whats everyone elses idea on the ideal A1P car.

increasing the engine power will get a1gp closer to f1.

I don't mind that Lola chassis as long as they have a proper engine cover on top rather than the simple champcar roll hoop. That said I'd be quite happy with the current design, just with a proper nose & front wing. I think this would make a really attractive car that would show off the conutries liveries well.

The roll hoop is great. Nice and retro.

Anyone see the new France and S.Africa car liveries for this season? Even more striking than last years, another step in the right direction! I was hoping that team GB might make there car a little different from last year, doesnt seem like it though...

I like the France one, much better than last season.

But South Africa is just plain wrong....the front is too red!

Where did you see the South Africa one? To be honest I think they need a new livery, last year's one was a bit of a mess.

Actually, it's not as bad as I first thought. From the side it'll be nice. But a direct frontal shot and we may as well be looking at Team China.

I loved last years livery, it stood out.

A2 Brutus?

I can't think of the circuits particularly but do recall seeing several A1GP races where the cars lacked power. Dunno about 200 hp more, but they do need a lift IMO.

Actually I think the power boost will make it interesting, they could have done with SOMETHING for Brands last weekend. Must admit it was lacklustre, I would have thought that a lot of teams would have just been "going for it" as they don't need the cars again......
