All go for A1GP


THE State Government says it has an 'unconditional' written assurance from A1GP bosses that the racing series will be on the Gold Coast for next month's SuperGP.

The Government moved to shore up the A1GP following a day of destabilising rumours that claimed the financially-stricken series was on the cusp of folding.

Speculation about A1GP's commitment to the Gold Coast's most important event hit fever pitch yesterday when the Opposition went on the attack.

They were quick to put the knockers on the event, suggesting the SuperGP was doomed and the State Government's promise that the cars would arrive was 'less than convincing'.

However, Sport Minister Phil Reeves said A1GP boss Tony Teixeira had told him on Monday at least 15 teams were booked to fly to the Gold Coast in mid-October and there was no substance to rumours they would pull out at the last minute.

"He has personally advised me that everything is go, and I've also received written assurance -- an unconditional and irrevocable assurance -- that the A1GP series will be part of the SuperGP," he told The Bulletin.

Kebab has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Didn't Teixeira also say that everyone would get paid?

Because there are so many unconfirmed on there that you know that is not going to be how it turns out!

TT is at it again. I know of a least 2 teams that are not A1 supported (and several A1 supported) and they all know nothing of TT's so called travel plans? In fact they know nothing FULL STOP

"15 teams" -> well I guess the ones that don't know the travel plans are not included in the 15 .

Funny because 2 are actually paid up franchised teams and not reliant on A1?? Not to many of those.

A1GP heads back to Zhuhai China, for 2009-10 Season

A1GP will return to the Chinese track of Zhuhai for its one and only visit to the nation during the 2009-10 Season.

After much speculation and anticipation with just 34 days to the opening round of the season at Surfers Paradise in Australia, the Chinese track has finally been confirmed by the FIA as round 2 of the season on the weekend of the 15th November 2009, replacing the proposed round on the streets of Lippo Village in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Zhuhai last hosted an A1GP event as a round of the 2007-08 A1GP World Cup of Motorsport season, in which A1Teams Germany and India won the two races respectively. A1 Team Switzerland went onto win the championship.


The 2008-09 Season saw the series visit the unknown circuit of Chengdu at the request of the Chinese government to give support and enjoyment back to the people of the Sichuan region, which was devastated by an earthquake in May 2008. Race winners at Chengdu were A1 Team Portugal and A1 Team Ireland, the latter going on to take World Cup glory at the finale at Brands Hatch in May.


The Formula One circuit in Shanghai, and the streets of Beijing have both also held rounds of the championship in previous years.


According to multiple sources, the Indonesian round at Lippo Village has been moved back to a January date, where it is due to open the 2010 half of the 2009-10 Championship, before the series moves away from Asia and across to Africa, then the Americas and ending the season in Europe, in May at Assen, The Netherlands. The final round of the 2009 part of the season will take place at Sepang, Malaysia on December 6th.

Race cars in lock-up

A LONDON freight company has locked up the A1GP cars due to race in next month's Nikon SuperGP but series bosses have promised 'we won't let the Gold Coast down'.

A1GP general manager Paul Cherry confirmed to the Weekend Bulletin yesterday its cars were being held under lock and key in London by the company DOT because of unpaid bills over last season's transport.

"There are some cars," he said, when asked if DOT had been holding the cars since May awaiting payment of unpaid bills said to be up to $1.9 million.

"We are working with DOT, obviously they have to protect their position and have taken some of the cars.

"They are working with us very well to ensure we are going to be there (on the Gold Coast) on October 16 even though we haven't ironed out all the commercial difficulties."

Mr Cherry said DOT planned to fly the cars to Australia for the Nikon SuperGP regardless.

"They are one of our major creditors but they are also one of our major supporters," he said.

"We are not going to let the Gold Coast down. We've got our hotels booked, freight booked, team uniforms ordered ... we are not doing all of this for a smokescreen."

Mr Cherry said its full calendar was ready to go but was awaiting FIA approval, which had been delayed because a Formula One hearing into race fixing had been given priority.

Alex, thanks for posting the Zhuhai piece. What was the source?

Bad news for me as I was hoping to go to Zhuhai on Dec 6, I will be elsewhere on Nov 15 :-(

It aint looking good. This is such a shame, was turning into a great little series.

In my opinion, they would have been better off sticking with the old car and engine for another few years, did the Ferrari link really add anything for the fans? I'm not so sure it mattered a jot.
