2007 to launch with Bahrain party

The GP2 Series will kick off its 2007 season with a championship-launching party in Bahrain on the evening of April 12. The event, to be housed in a specially built venue at the Bahrain International Circuit in the F1 Vending Zone, will be the first chance for the media to meet the Class of 2007, and to reacquaint themselves with the leading personalities from our teams and the GP2 Series organisation.

The evening will take the form of a VIP club event with an open bar and light buffet for guests. With half the venue given over to a comfortable and intimate arrangement of seating, the remainder will be one large dance floor as the GP2 Series continues its tradition of launching its championship seasons with an exciting musical show.

This year we welcome Guy Hornsby and Gary Holden, two of the finest emerging DJs from the North and South of the UK, who will launch the 2007 season with a continuous mix of the finest electro and house music.

Guy Hornsby is a London- based House DJ and fledgling producer. He first put needle to vinyl in late '99, when he began promoting and DJing for London night Wildchild. He's played at many of the capital's best venues such as the Gallery at Turnmills, The End, Neighbourhood, Ministry of Sound, Heaven, SEOne, The Rhythm Factory, The Aquarium and The Fridge, and has enjoyed gigs with Garlands and Judgement Sundays at Eden over the last few summers in Ibiza, as well as conducting radio work in both the UK and Ibiza.

2006 has seen Guy produce his first track, Downshift, following a summer of inspiration in Ibiza and the instruction of Dan Gerrett at Subbass. Downshift was signed by Devore Recordings in February, with a late April release date in the offing.

Gary Holden's career spans a decade of dance music. He has played for over 200 hard dance music brands, and is just as comfortable playing to 500,000 people at Amsterdam's GayPride, as he is playing to thousands at festivals or hundreds in smaller, more intimate clubs, weekend after weekend. Currently holding a residency for both Vi4gra and Tidy Leeds, it is Gary's consistency which has always marked him out. His residencies at both Base and Sessions were, quite simply, legendary.

Gary's DJGRH Recordings is a steadily growing and successful label, with a string of quality releases to note. With digital sales continuing to gain momentum, his own skills as a producer and co-producer have seen his tracks become favourites with some of the biggest names in the business, and have placed his name and music on some of the most popular hard dance compilations of recent years.

Associated with three of Leeds' biggest house and dance music brands (Fibre, Federation and Mission) Gary's diversification into house / electro sounds was always inevitable given his love for all forms of dance music. For the GP2 Series Launch 2007 he joins up with Guy Hornsby for an association which promises to deliver over four hours of the very best in electro and house.

The GP2 Series launch will begin at 19:30 and, at only a 2 minute walk, will be clearly signed from the F1 paddock. We look forward to welcoming our friends in the media to our season-opening party and to sharing what is sure to be an epic evening with you all.
