The kick start of the 2008/09 season was postponed, so it won't be until 5 October (21 days from now) that we'll see A1GP Team India perform in the new Ferrari-powered car.

Can't wait for the new season to get started. :goodluck:

:oof: Oh no! Team India is out of round 1 of the season in Zandvoort, Netherlands. The car is not ready yet...

Team GB is out as well, and so are Germany, Canada, Mexico. Looks like 12 to 14 cars will run.

Apparently the car suppliers could not cope with demand. :tomato: :tomato: :tomato:

A1 Team India finally got the car ready from the organisers and lined-up on the grid of the Chengdu race in China. NK scored minor points in the last two rounds (Malaysia and New Zealand), but we expect more strong races from him, at least matching his performance that enabled him to win two races and rank an amazing 10th in the final standings. Pedal on the metal NK !

At Brands Hatch, Narain Karthikeyan qualified 7th in the sprint race and finished second. A podium finish is a good show -- Narain really likes this track. Ireland won the sprint race and has taken the lead with Switzerland (Neel Jani finished 8th in the sprint race). The feature race is to start in short while from now with India qualifying in 10th place. Go India.

In the feature race due to China car big crash happened on first lap and that take Chinese and our Indian car out of the race ... Narain must be cursing as he was hoping for another strong finish.

A1GP Team India finished the shortened 08/09 season in 12th place, which is not very good for a team fielding a high-profile ex-F1 driver. I hope Karun Chandhok will return to the team next year - he's a much better driver now that in 05/06 when he drove a couple of races for Team India.
