After a brace of points scoring finishes last time out in New Zealand, James Hinchcliffe will be looking to carry Team Canada's momentum into the latest round of the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport this weekend at Eastern Creek, Australia.

Hinchliffe comes into the weekend on the back of a pair of sixth place finishes in Taupo on what was his return to the seat - having missed the rounds in Malaysia and Indonesia as Sean McIntosh returned to the team

Hinchcliffe, a race winner in Formula BMW, Star Mazda and the Champ Car Atlantic Championship in his native North America, has proved to be a consistent performer for A1 Team Canada in his first season in the seat, boasting a record of seven top-ten finishes in eight race starts for the team in his rookie season.

"From what I've seen of the track there's going to be a large emphasis on qualifying well due to the tight confines of the race surface but I'm ready for that having brought myself back up to speed in New Zealand," he said. "The cars have run here before so I've got plenty of information to digest before we go out on Friday for practice.

"Sean showed the car had real pace here in Australia last season so I'm hoping we can carry that form as well as the momentum from New Zealand into this weekend's sprint and feature races."
