Guillaume Moreau joins A1 Team France
Guillaume Moreau has been selected by A1 Team France to be part of its driver line-up for the 2008-09 season. He will soon get behind the wheel of the brand new car designed by Ferrari. Guillaume from the Limousin region is over the moon about this, and hopes to make a significant contribution to the French attempt to win back the title.
A1 Grand Prix has entered another dimension with the arrival of a brand new car carrying the mythic Prancing Horse badge. This championship whose innovative aspect is that it pits nation and not drivers against one another, kicked off last weekend on the Zandvoort circuit in Holland. Loic Duval's performance enabled France to take the joint lead in the overall classification with Malaysia.
In addition to Duval, A1 Team France includes Nicolas Prost and Guillaume Moreau. Guillaume is over the moon at the prospect of getting behind the wheel of the French car in the near future. "I feel honoured to have been chosen by the team management who had a wide selection to pick from when they were deciding on the other drivers. Even if my programme is not yet fully defined, I'll do everything I can to help the team reconquer the title they won in the first season. For me it's a great opportunity after a rather disappointing season in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series."
Guillaume is attracted by the concept of the championship. "I've always been interested by the idea of a battle between nations; I see football from a different point of view when the French team's playing. A1GP proposes a really innovative concept for motor sport and I'm proud to carry the French colours."
Olivier Panis, the A1 Team France sporting director shares his enthusiasm: "I met Guillaume this year in the Le Mans Series. He did a great job in that championship where he won the GT1 title. His single-seater talent combined with his experience in endurance should be a bonus for A1 Team France. He knows Loic Duval well as they were team-mates in Formula Renault and Formula 3, and I'm sure that together with the help of Nicolas Prost A1 Team France has an excellent line-up of drivers who complement one another. We're happy to welcome him to the team and we'll do all we can to enable him to proudly fly the French colours."
