The A1GP World Cup of Motorsport has announced its fifth season calendar which includes four new race meetings.
The nine race event calendar, subject to FIA approval, includes four new races in Australia, Brazil, Germany and the Netherlands.
It also has three that have been on an A1GP calendar once before, in China, South Africa and Portugal, and one twice before, in Mexico.
A1GP Chairman, Tony Teixeira says, “It is easy to put out a calendar too soon and then have to make changes. I wanted to make sure we avoided that and so give our broadcasters, teams and fans something realistic. I also wanted to make sure the racing was good and varied. I am confident this calendar, that may still include at least one more event, will achieve our criteria for the series.”
The season kicks off in six weeks with the Nikon Super GP in Surfers Paradise on the Australian Gold Coast.
