London, United Kingdom, - A1 Team Great Britain and Metro continue media partnership for the 2008/09 A1GP World Cup of Motorsport

A1 Team Great Britain is pleased to announce that it will continue its media partnership with Metro, a UK national newspaper, for the duration of the 2008/09 A1GP World Cup of Motorsport season. The relationship began last April to encompass the final two rounds of the 07/08 season, which included the spectacular season finale at Brands Hatch where GBR took the Sprint race win and bronze in the championship table.

The partnership will ensure that readers across Great Britain will be able to keep up-to-date with the in and outs of the championship battle as A1 Team GBR aim for gold in season four of the World Cup of Motorsport. Fans outside of commuter areas where Metro is distributed will not have to miss out anymore as there is also the facility now to get Metro each morning straight to your email inbox. Readers just need to log onto www.emetro.co.uk to sign up to receive the daily email.

Metro will once again adorn the A1 Team Great Britain car, which will feature a brand new red, white and blue livery, to be revealed soon. Readers will have exclusive access to GBR competitions and behind the scenes features on Britain's only national motor racing team.

Katie Clements, Team Principal, A1 Team GBR: "It is a thrilling time for British sport and patriotism as the country begins the exciting countdown to the 2012 Olympic Games. British sport and motor racing fans can get behind their country a whole four years in advance though by backing A1 Team Great Britain in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport. I am delighted that Metro is continuing to support our team as we head into season four with the new A1GP Powered by Ferrari cars and we are firmly aiming to take the title."

Kenny Campbell, Editor, Metro: "We are delighted to continue our association with a championship as exciting and competitive as A1 GP and, in particular, proud to be backing a fantastic group of people at A1 Team GBR. After a summer of British sporting success, we look forward to bringing sports fans yet more good news, courtesy of our British A1GP partners."

At first it was only available in London, but now commuters in 16 of Britain's major cities can pick up a free copy of Metro. Every weekday morning some 1.36 million copies are distributed across the UK, making Metro the world's largest free newspaper, and the fourth biggest newspaper in the UK. Metro covers a mix of national and international news, combined with local information and listings, and is distributed in Bath, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield - a combined area with a population of more than 18 million. Recently, the newspaper has launched emetro, enabling anyone to subscribe to receive Metro online each morning, meaning it is now available to all consumers, not just those in the commuter areas. www.metro.co.uk
