Practice session delayed for A1GP Beijing, China

Today's two practice sessions for the A1GP Beijing, China were cancelled today, delaying A1 Team India's preparations for the two races on Sunday.

The sessions were cancelled to allow organisers to address issues with the brand new street circuit. The track, designed especially for the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport Series received its FIA Grade 2 approval this morning as planned, but, following initial installation laps by some teams, organisers opted to delay on-track activity until their concerns over one section of the track have been addressed.

Twenty A1GP cars left the pit lane at 15.15 this afternoon for the delayed start of the first official practice session. After two cars had experienced minor incidents at turn eight, the hairpin bend at the end of the straight, which caused the session to be red flagged, it was decided to cancel all further track action for the day.

The A1GP World Cup of Motorsport races in Beijing, China take place this Sunday, 12 November, with a 20 minute Sprint Race and a 70 minute Feature race which includes a mandatory pitstop.
