GP Week : Issue 53
> F1NEWS> Speedcar series goes down THE Speedcar Series, which acted as a Formula 1 support event at a number of Asian races in 2008 and 2009, has been cancelled after a financial rescue deal led by championship boss Claudio Berro failed to save it. The championship, which featured a host of former F1 THE new-for-2010 GP3 car has broken light for the first time. The car, penned by the same team of Dallara designers under the direction of GP2 Series Technical Director Didier Perrin, was taken out at the hands of GP2 championship leader Romain Grosjean for its first laps at Circuit Paul Ricard, France, last week. The GP3 car, powered by Renault and running on Pirelli tyres, ran reliably and GPWeek understands that GP3 organisers were impressed with its first run. Back in the world of GP2, however, the championship is set to see its first driver change of the season at Hockenheim as a familiar face returns to the fold. Frenchman Franck Perera, a podium finisher for Dams in 2006, will replace Giacomo Ricci at DPR after spending two years racing in America for Conquest Racing in the Indy Light and IRL championships Images used in GPWEEK are shot by the photo-artists at Sutton Images.

At the same time, the future of A1GP has been called into question with the news that the UK-based A1 Grand Prix Operations company has gone into liquidation as a result of a compulsory winding up order issued by the British courts, filed and supported by a number of suppliers to the company. A1GPO was, however, only one of many companies in the A1GP Group and GPWeek understands that none of the other companies in the group are currently affected. A1GP has long been hit with rumours of financial problems, but the winding up of one of the championship organiser’s companies is a worrying development. Interested in Aussie V8 Supercars?
