The concept became a reality today as the 25 nations left their garages, rolled down the pitlane and set out on the 2005/2006 A1 Grand Prix season. Two one-hour official practices were held -- the first in the dry and the second in the wet with a drying track towards the end. Red flags appeared with moderate frequency as drivers new to cars and the circuit were caught out.

Robbie Kerr driving for A1 Team Great Britain stayed firmly on the track and put in consistently fast times to lie fourth and second on the timing sheets for the sessions.

Robbie Kerr "It was wicked! I'm happy that we made good progress and are going in the right direction. There are a few things still to improve on with the car and me on the track but I'm confident for the weekend ahead. The conditions were a bit tricky -- fairly damp and greasy and constantly changing. I'm just learning the car and taking my time and slowly improving through the session as planned. We've not had much time together as a team but that's all coming together too."
