A1 Grand Prix's course around the globe has now been set with the confirmation of the first season's racing calendar. Visiting some of the world's most exciting countries, the inaugural World Cup of Motorsport will host 24 adrenaline-fuelled races over 12 weekends.

Teams from every corner of the globe will compete on a level playing field across world-famous circuits and newly upgraded facilities. Bringing a new dimension to international motorsport, A1 Grand Prix will take motorsport to previously untapped markets.

Announcing the 2005/06 season calendar, A1 Grand Prix Founder, President and Chairman Sheikh Maktoum said: 'I am delighted to confirm the race calendar for the first-ever World Cup of Motorsport. We have spoken to A1 Teams, national governments and most importantly our fans to produce a schedule that promises to deliver exciting, high-speed racing across every habitable continent. A1 Grand Prix is about making motorsport accessible, with affordable tickets to popular locations. To have up to 25 A1 race cars, each proudly presenting their national sponsors, competing at circuits in both developed and developing markets, will be a remarkable spectacle for both new and traditional race fans.'

Following the summer sun around the globe, A1 Grand Prix will deliver 12 weekends of exciting racing action outside of the traditional motorsport season, kicking-off at Brands Hatch, Great Britain on 25 September 2005.
