BACK TO BACK P1's FOR A1 TEAM USA AT PAUL RICARD

A1 Team USA follows inaugural running of their 'We the People' car with impressive form during the first two days of testing in France

LE CASTELLET, France - A1 Team USA completed the second of three days testing at the Paul Ricard high tech test track in position one at the head of the 20 nation field. Scott Speed who drove the fastest lap on day one of testing repeated his success with the fastest lap in day two, before Colin Fleming took the car. Leading from start to finish A1 Team USA set the pace.

A1 Team USA was pleased with day two of testing, at the Paul Ricard high tech test track, with team owner Rick Weidinger commenting, "Scott Speed and Colin Fleming have done an excellent job for A1 Team USA." Rick continued, "We look forward to the final test session tomorrow with Matt Jaskol taking the wheel for his first session in A1 Team USA's 'We the People' race car."

Rick Weidinger commented from France, "A1 Team USA is obligated to attract the best team to perform for their country on the track and in the garage, and judging by the first two days of testing it looks like we are heading in the right direction. Following on from the unveiling of A1 Team USA's 'We the People' race car I am very pleased by the way that the racing team is operating. A1 Team USA showed great consistency in France, but we recognize that running fast times in testing is only the first step to winning hardware in the A1 GP Series."

A1 Team USA has been contacted by both experienced and young US drivers interested in experiencing the challenge of international motor sport, and the unique opportunity that A1 Grand Prix offers in representing your country. It has been a month since A1 Team USA announced its involvement in the international racing series, and the team has demonstrated significant action both on and off the track, and the back-to-back fast times has given the team great enthusiasm leading into the final month of preparation before the A1 Grand Prix Series goes to Brand Hatch, Great Britain for the inaugural race of the Series in September.
