The Mexican round of A1GP has been postponed by one week so as not to clash with a concert also being held at the circuit the same weekend.

The event, which was supposed to take place on 13-15 March 2009, has been moved back to 20-22 March 2009 due to a Radiohead concert occurring at the baseball stadium situated within the Fundidora Park circuit.

Although A1GP CEO Pete da Silva admits it is unfortunate to change the dates, he was happy to do so when he considers Mexico's dedication to the series since it began back in 2005.

"This request came from the local organisers and, while it is unfortunate we have had to move the date, this is necessary because of a clashing event at the track that incorporates a baseball stadium that doubles up as a concert venue.

"We are delighted it is still possible to race in Mexico City as this has always proved to be a popular and exciting race weekend for our fans, so because of this we were happy to support this request."

Meanwhile, the circuit could be slightly revised for this year's race, with a new layout for the chicane being submitted by the FIA.
