A1 Grand Prix change Brands Hatch date after feedback from the fans.

25th January 2005 - The date of the inaugural round of the A1 Grand Prix series has been moved from the 18th September to the 25th September in response to feedback from UK motorsport fans.

A1 Grand Prix President, Sheikh Maktoum, said: "We had an amazing reaction from the UK fans to the announcement that the first event was being held in the UK. They confirmed our beliefs they are one of the most patriotic group of fans in motorsport. Many of the fans had already purchased tickets for other events on that date, so were disappointed they were not going to be able to attend our event. We have now made it possible for them to be with us at Brands Hatch."

Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of Brands Hatch owner MotorSport Vision, said: "We are obviously all concerned to provide both spectators and television audiences with the best opportunity to watch the major events on the calendar, and I think we've now got the best overall balance."
