Robbie Kerr will hope to make experience pay when he returns to the A1 Team GB entry for the fourth round of the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport his coming weekend in Malaysia.

Kerr endured mixed fortunes at Sepang last season, scoring a podium finish in the sprint race before retiring from the feature but this around he will be looking to carry the momentum build by Oliver Jarvis last time out in Beijing, when the rookie driver claimed a second place finish in the feature race - the teams first podium of the season.

"I'm excited to be returning to race for A1 Team Great Britain at a track I thoroughly enjoy," Kerr said. "We were competitive last time we raced here and on current form, notably Oliver's podium performance in China, there's no reason why we shouldn't be challenging up at the front for a second straight season. Track knowledge should definitely play to our advantage so I'm keen to get going again."

A1 Team GBR team principal John Surtees is similarly keen to see the British outfit build on its recent potential, with Jarvis taking part in the Friday rookie session before Kerr continues for the rest of the weekend.

"We're looking for first class results in Malaysia with Robbie back behind the wheel and Oliver doing his bit on Friday morning," he said. "Oliver can use his time in the rookie session re-evaluating the set-up's we ran last season to good use and then hopefully Robbie can utilise his experiences from a year ago to keep us racing at the sharp end of the grid and push for victory."
