New points system for A1GP.

A1GP has announced a change to its scoring system for the new season in an effort to minimise the losses of those teams unable to take part in the opening round of the year this weekend at Zandvoort.

Delays in the build of the new Powered by Ferrari car mean not all teams will be present for the season opener in Holland and as a result, the sporting regulations for the series have been changed with teams scoring points from their nine best events during the year rather than all ten.

That means the final points standings will not include the worst result of the year for each team, which will be the combined points from the Sprint and Feature races.

The team test due to take place this week has also been moved back to run on Thursday and Friday to give teams as much chance as possible to prepare for the weekend, with an extended first practice on Saturday coming before the usual second session and qualifying.

“The teams have been working extremely hard in preparation for this weekend's races,” series CEO Pete da Silva said. “By putting the Snetterton testing dates back as late as possible we hope to ensure the maximum number of cars possible are available to race this weekend.

“It is unfortunate, despite this, some teams will still be unable to compete. To ensure the championship remains on a level playing field, however, we have made the decision to implement changes to the scoring system so these teams are not as greatly disadvantaged.”
