Two major test sessions planned

10.06.2008: Two major test sessions planned

A1GP teams will have two multi-day test sessions to get to grips with the new A1GP car.

As part of the calendar announcement, the testing programme for the off-season was also confirmed as two official sessions.

With all nations getting a new car, powered by legendary Italian sportscar manufacturer Ferrari, for the fourth season of A1GP World cup of Motorsport, the teams will be keen to learn as much as they can about how it performs and the intricacies of its set-up.

The first test will take place at Silverstone in Great Britain on Monday 18 to Wednesday 20 August. The Silverstone test has quickly become a traditional part of the A1GP off-season and is also a chance for teams to try out potential new drivers for the coming season.

The second test will take place in Mugello, Italy on Wednesday 17 – Thursday 18 September, immediately prior to the A1GP event there, the opening round in the fourth season of A1GP World Cup of Motorsport.

As usual, www.A1GP.com will be present at everyone moment of both test sessions, bringing you up-to-date with all the latest news as the sun rises on the new season.
