RE the sound of the A1 cars, i was at the Sydney round for last season and i'd have to say that whilst the crackling and popping of the exhaust was nice, the overall noise was only loud, and thats all. A friend i was with commented that Formula 1 cars in comparison sounded alot better, not quite as loud but perhaps echoed more.

Cheers
unburnt fuel causes this, the A1GP car's have the same engine as the old zytek 04S LMP1 car and that backfired unlike anything on four wheels or indeed, anything with wheels!

The backfiring and flames are caused by running a rich fuel mixture. They do this to cool the exhaust valves. If they were too lean they would heat up causing problems.

A very old thread I found on the A1 open wheelers.

I'm fully aware it all fell to bits with the GFC, but what actually happened to the cars themselves?

From memory last I heard some years back they were stuck in the UK with unpaid bills hanging over their head.

Just interested to know of any news on them........perhaps they were scrapped?

Marcus666 has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I think that the Auto GP got the F2004 inspired cars and Formula Hasselhoff (FA1) got the Lola's.

Not quite. Both FA1 and Auto GP use the Lola. The Ferraris haven't been used since A1 ended.

Im sure everyone knows what AutoGP is but for those that are unfamiliar with the other group that uses the Lola it is marketed as "Acceleration" and mixes open wheelers , legend cars and pick up truck races with dance parties and is based in Europe.

A friend spotted the entire A1GP grid plus the Ferrari pace car in a warehouse near Woking about a year or so ago. Obviously, these would have been the cars with the Ferrari engines.
