Hi Everyone,

I looking forward to the A1GP event in Taupo, It will be nice to get on the new circuit. Looking over the data and hearing how the car performed last year I'm very optimistic come the rookie sessions tomorrow. The track here is quite narrow and short compared to many of the other race tracks, this may be positive in the way that I will be able to turn more laps than at previous events. The only difference from last year and this year regarding the circuit is that turn 12 has been modified to a tighter corner to create a better passing opportunity. It will be good to collect data and give feedback regarding this corner as well as the track surface and grip level going into the second practice session. I think Taupo will be a good event for us!
