Team Lebanon heads for this weekend's fourth round of the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport, at Sepang in Malaysia, chasing its first points of the season.

A1 Team Lebanon drivers Khalil Beschir and Basil Shaaban represented the team at the event a year ago, and this season are joined by a young rookie driver, Alex Khateeb.

"I enjoyed my races at this circuit last season and gained valuable experience here," said Beschir. "I hope that this will help us at this year's event, with the data we collected and the track knowledge that we gained. It's a great track to drive, although last year we had very changeable weather, which made the racing very unpredictable. I expect that we might see the seasonal rainstorms to impact on the races this year as well."

"The A1GP series really mixes up the challenges for the teams," added Shaaban. "Two weeks ago we were exploring the streets of Beijing in the first ever international motor racing event the Chinese capital had held and now we're at the well-established permanent facility of Sepang, which offers a totally different racing environment. It's one of the key strengths of the Series and gives drivers such as myself, the chance to broaden and learn from these different racing experiences."

"I'm excited to be visiting one of the current tracks that the Formula One World Championship races on," declared Khateeb. "I've watched the races on television and they're always full of action, so I'm expecting A1GP to deliver some great racing for the Malaysian fans. For me, I'll be doing my rookie duties for the team and hope that we have a good race weekend."
