A1 Grand Prix, Brands Hatch, 2005The A1 Grand Prix series have releasesd the provisional schedule for its second season which will run over the winter of 2006-07. As expected the British round of the series at Brands Hatch (pictured) has moved from the opener to the finale.

13 events are scheduled – one more than was planned for the first season although one of these (Curitiba, Brazil) was cancelled, another (Sentul, Indonesia) postponed and a third (Laguna Seca, United States) narrowly avoided being cancelled.

Interestingly China is currently slated to hold two rounds of the series. The calendar sees a lot of change from the 2005-06 schedule – only Brands Hatch, Sepang, Shanghai and Durban are expected to be re-visited by A1.
