Special Report  – A1GP Team Canada (Part #2)

Friday’s A1GP Team Canada press conference in Toronto was a great opportunity for me to meet up again with Patrick Carpentier, as well as meet John Surtees a racing legend, and a new race hero – Sean McIntosh. Canadian businessman Wade Cherwayko is the Canadian Franchise Holder for A1 Team Canada, unfortunately he was unavailable for the conference due to business commitments in Nigeria. (Click HERE for Part 1) John Surtees ranks among the world’s greatest racers. He is the only man to win world championships on two and four wheels. He won seven world championships on motorcycles, one Formula One World Drivers Title and the North American CanAm Championship in sports cars.

Special Report: A1GP Team Canada (Part #1)

A1 Team Canada made a special appearance in Toronto on Friday to announce the recent addition of Patrick Carpentier to the fold.  This announcement and media conference comes as the team and the series attempts to stir public excitement in this unique race series. Paddock Talk had the opportunity to attend the Toronto media presentation and is pleased to share the following. The announcement that Canadian driver Patrick Carpentier will join the team and race for his Country in Monterrey Mexico and the U.S. race at Laguna Seca was a great boost to A1 Team Canada and to the series’ profile in Canada. Until now the series has reached a TV audience that covers 80% of the world, however there is currently no coverage in North America.  While A1GP has gone through the first half of the season with very little television exposure here in Canada and the USA, the race events are accessible live via high-speed Internet access at http://www.A1GP.com
