A1 Team Netherlands Thrill the Crowds in Assen

10.08.2009: The Dutch fans had their first glimpse of the A1GP Powered by Ferrari car at the Rizla Racing Day in Assen this weekend (Sunday 9 August) ahead of Season Five. The series will head to the TT

The Dutch fans had their first glimpse of the A1GP Powered by Ferrari car at the Rizla Racing Day in Assen this weekend (Sunday 9 August) ahead of Season Five.



The series will head to the TT Circuit Assen to race for the first time on 14-16 May 2010, but last Sunday the Dutch,who have proved one of the most enthusiastic and loyal set of fans, had their first taste of A1GP around the world famous circuit.

At the annual Rizla Racing Day, A1 Team Netherlands star Jeroen Bleekemolen put the car through its paces for some demonstration laps and donuts, much to the delight of the cheering crowds.

A1 Team Netherlands seat holder Jan Lammers was on hand to see all the action:

"What a delight to hear the sound of our Powered by Ferrari engine start up. After the summer break we couldn't wait to get started again. The Rizla Racing Day was another great display of the never fading enthusiasm of our Dutch fans. Jeroen Bleekemolen got them to put their hands together again as they applauded the spectacular demonstration that he did for them.

“The A1GP organisation is finalising what I think will be a great calendar with the first A1GP event at Surfers Paradise on October 25. What better place could there be to start our fifth season.”

Talking about his home event next season he continued: “The A1GP event in Assen on May 16, 2010 is only nine months away and ticket sales have already picked up. Sponsorship and driver negotiations for A1 Team Netherlands are well underway and progressing nicely. A1GP is still the coolest concept and best thing that has ever happened to motorsport so with great ambition we are looking forward to taking on the world again and fighting for the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport"
