Summerton to drive for A1GP Team USA in South Africa

Orlando Florida - Jonathan Summerton has been chosen to be the race driver for Team USA in the A1GP race in Durban, South Africa next week. Jonathan showed great potential at the last rookie test at Eastern Creek in Australia where he set the fastest lap placing his Team USA, "We The People" car, in P1.

As a rookie, Jonathan will be able to drive the Friday test sessions as well as the practice session before entering the 4 qualifying sessions, in readiness for the sprint and feature races. When asked about this opportunity Jonathan said, " I am really looking forward to this drive despite me only having test driven the car at 3 events. I feel comfortable in working with the team and I hope over the weekend we can move up the points and I can perform to everyone's expectations."

Currently Team USA is 12th in the points with just four races left to run, Durban, Mexico, Shanghai and the final at Brands Hatch, England. All races are televised on SPEED TV.
