A1GP – The final nail in the coffin?

1 Mins read

A1GP has been left in limbo after it was announced that further rounds have been cancelled.

With the opening round at Surfers Paradise in Australia cancelled, the news that the China and Malaysia rounds have been cancelled don’t bode well for the series.

Along with this news Autosport is reporting that the administrators in control of A1GP are hoping to sell the entire fleet of cars to someone who wants to run the series, but it also pointed out that the cars will need to be modifies to meet the FIA’s new head-restraint and side-impact regulations.

With the least of the hangar which was used for the A1GP at Silverstone expiring last week the cars and equipment have been placed in storage.

A number of key personnel have also left the series which doesn’t appear to have much of a future now.
