27.09.2007: A1 Team India launches in New Delhi

A1 Team India has geared up for the new A1GP season by hosting a special launch in New Delhi.

The team officially unveiled the new sky blue livery on the car, which Narain Karthikeyan will driver, starting this weekend in Zandvoort, the Netherlands. Blue is the official sporting colour of India, and is used by most of its sporting teams, including its national cricket squad.

India is tipped by many to excel in A1GP this season, and were the quickest of all at last week’s official Silverstone test session.

Karthikeyan particularly was vocal about the team’s hopes for the forthcoming season at the flagging off ceremony.

He said: ‘We had a very good outing at the Silverstone test session last week where we were the quickest of the 22 nations participating. I am going to be racing my heart out. A1GP is a great opportunity for me to represent my country and I hope that I will be able to bring pride to the people of India with my performances through the season.’

A1GP will be televised live on ESPN Star Sports in India this season.

A1 Team India seat holder Ravi Chilukuri added: ‘Motorsport is a fast developing area in India. With all the numbers showing an increase in viewers and passion for the sport. I have no doubt that our association with A1 Team India will be a fruitful one. We look forward to success for Narain and the team and we wish A1 Team India all the very best. Jai Hind!'

A1 Team India chief executive officer, Yohann Setna also exuded confidence about the forthcoming season. He said: ‘The Silverstone test was a good chance for Narain to get reacclimatised with the car and re-acquainted with the team.

‘The team mechanics and engineers have put in a massive pre-season effort to rebuild the car to the highest standard possible and with Narain’s invaluable experience and natural talent we are confident we will be very competitive.

‘The nation will take great pride in watching Narain drive for his country in Zandvoort and for the rest of the season.’
