Watts recalled by Team GBR for Malyasia.

Danny Watts will race for A1 Team Great Britain again in Malaysia next week, it has been confirmed.

After scoring a crucial 16 points in China on Sunday and taking two podiums on his debut with A1 Team GBR, Watts is now looking forward to the third round of the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport.

The result in China was a huge achievement for A1 Team GBR, which was forced to sit out the season opener in Zandvoort due to build delay problems with the new A1GP Powered by Ferrari cars. It was therefore vital for the team to score well in Chengdu, the second race of the 2008/09 calendar.

The team worked incredibly hard through the days and nights to get the car race ready and the work was repaid on Sunday with Danny's two podium finishes, a result that seemed almost unattainable before the weekend.

"I am delighted to be representing A1 Team GBR again. We had a strong start in Chengdu last weekend and it's obviously important to continue that form in Sepang," said Watts.

"The aim has got to be to target a couple more podiums, but we have already shown we are competitive, so race wins must be our primary goal from now on. I will do my upmost to achieve these goals for A1 Team GBR and move us higher up the Championship table."

A1 Team Great Britain has a good record at Sepang, with Robbie Kerr taking podium finishes in the 2005 Sprint race and in the 2006 Feature race, while Watts has driven the track before in a 2005 Porsche Carrera Cup event and GBR will be hoping that this experience, twinned with his success already so far in A1GP, will prove a winning combination come next weekend.

"I am still overwhelmed by the achievements of the team and Danny from China and we are heading to Malaysia with a very positive mindset," added A1 Team GBR boss Katie Clements. "The aim is to score another good haul of points and take another step up the championship table."
