A1GP Looks Forward To Racing In Zandvoort

London, Great Britain -- A1GP World of Motorsport will start Season Four next week at the A1GP Zandvoort, Netherlands event on 4/5 October with a smaller grid than anticipated. The series has made no secret of its car build delay, and this has impacted on the number that will be on the grid at the Dutch seaside resort track.

"The situation we find ourselves in is unfortunate. We have a small number of teams who will not be in Zandvoort. While these teams are obviously very disappointed, they understand we have done everything possible but just ran out of time," said A1GP CEO, Pete da Silva.

"I am aware of how hard our teams have been working, and are continuing to do that day and night. The fact some won't make the grid next week will not be for lack of trying. We have had an awful lot of support from many areas and I particularly want to thank our suppliers, partners and sponsors who have stood by us. We have asked a lot of many of them and they have delivered. All the teams who are racing are committed to giving the fans the exciting entertainment they have come to expect from A1GP at the Zandvoort track," he added.

The series plans to have all its nations on the grid for the second event of Season Four, A1GP Chengdu, China on 7-9 November.

The A1GP Zandvoort, Netherlands will count towards the championship. The schedule for the weekend will be as follows:
