A1GP Unveils Provisional Calendar for '06-'07

London, UK – 7/5/2006

A1 Grand Prix officials have revealed the provisional schedule for the second-ever season of the self-proclaimed "World Cup of Motorsport".

As previously confirmed, the 13-race calendar kicks off at the Zandvoort circuit in Holland on October 1st. The season will wrap up at last year's opener, Brands Hatch in England, on April 29.

In between those dates, there's plenty still in the air. The sixth round has been set for the Taupo circuit in New Zealand "subject to agreement with the venue", round nine will take place at either "North or South" America, the 10th race will go down in Mexico and a TBA venue, ditto for round 11 in Indonesia.

The championship, which lost $210m in its first season, outlines that "all races proposed on the 2006/07 season A1GP race calendar are subject to FIA World Council approval and the successful completion of commercial agreements between the circuit management and A1 Grand Prix." In the inaugural season, A1 ended up canceling the Curitiba round in Brazil claiming lack of safety conditions on the track, and postponing the Indonesia race after the Sheikh of Dubai, uncle of series founder Sheikh Maktoum, passed.

1) Netherlands, Circuit Park Zandvoort, 1 October 2006

will the north american race be held at laguna seca like last time?

i heard turnout was poor because the event was not promoted/advertised properly...

it surely is a great format...
rooting for your country as opposed to who has the most money and can capitalize on that...
