so Teixeira is going to pay back the Australian government and make a donation to charity ! not a hope there are many companys and individuals owed thousands and have been for a long time, not a chance.

Cant afford it, you have 5 hugely wealthy blokes behind A1GP, Colin Giltrap 5th richest bloke in NZ, one of the sultans of oil & greed and others, poor buggers must be doing it hard to only know 1 week out they cant afford it! May as well find a new venue if u can survive, i wont take a punt on losing my money again!

This is a disgrace and places Motorsport in a bad light worldwide.

The series is dead. Disburse the funds on hand to creditors T.T and walk away.

This is a lesson not only learnt by Australia but Motorsport worldwide together with providers whom the sport relies upon.

As for Alan Jones he should be ashamed of his actions in the whole affair and should be held accountable
together with the remaining authorities of the series.

Maybe if the government (Anna) had not made it such a family weekend the Indy cars would be here and we would have a race. Do all the spectators get money back...oh that is right the sport has no money to pay anything. Pack up go home and sell off. The idea is crap anyway.!!!

The series was good on paper & delivered some great racing, I was really hoping it would succeed. It appears to be dying a slow painful death, I feel sorry for all the race fans that were going to Sufers on the strength on the A1GP. I hear the v8 teams are stepping up to provide more races (hats off to them). :)
