Friday's official practice sessions, scheduled to take place at 11.00 and 14.00, have each been delayed by two hours. The Beijing street circuit has been designed specifically for the A1GP event and has therefore not been tested prior to today's activities.
Together with the FASC, A1GP has taken the decision to run the one lower-powered local series support race, Super Touring Cars, ahead of its two practice sessions to familiarise the circuit officials with procedures.
A1 Team Greece will not be participating in the A1GP Beijing race. Having joined the A1GP series in the closing weeks of the off-season, A1 Team Greece has decided to re-align the team and work on their competitive edge for future races.
Unfortunately, the driver whom the team had selected to compete in the Beijing race, is currently on national service and has not been allowed leave for the weekend. We fully expect A1 Team Greece to re-join the series for the Malaysia round. <pre> The following drivers have signed-on to drive in the A1GP Beijing, China, 10-12 Nov 2006.
