A1 Team Netherlands star Jeroen Bleekemolen gave Dutch fans their first glimpse of the A1GP Powered by Ferrari car at the Rizla Racing Day in Assen last weekend ahead of Season Five.

Bleekemolen put the car through its paces for some demonstration laps and donuts, much to the delight of the cheering crowds.

"What a delight to hear the sound of our Powered by Ferrari engine start up. After the summer break we couldn't wait to get started again," said A1 Team Netherlands seat holder Jan Lammers, who was on hand to see all the action.
