Canadian A1GP aces Sean McIntosh and James Hinchcliffe have reflected on their 2006-07 season in the nation vs. nation series - albeit one in which the Maple Leaf squad failed to improve on its 2005-06 performance.

McIntosh, Hinchcliffe and rookie Kevin Lacroix drove the Canadian entry to 11th position in the end-of-season title rankings, just two points shy of repeating the top ten showing the outfit achieved during the championship's inaugural campaign.

"It was a great way to wrap up the year," commented 21-year-old McIntosh, despite falling short in his efforts to notch up a second victory to add to the one he scored in Indonesia in February, 2006. "The atmosphere at Brands Hatch was a fantastic way to end another exciting season of A1GP. It's great to be associated with a series backed by such notable figures from the world of motorsport, and we've seen a lot of close racing this year which bodes well for the future."

"Season two ended the same way it began and that's with a lot of style," added 20-year-old Hinchcliffe. "The sheer crowd numbers at Zandvoort back in October was a wicked way to start the season, and that was echoed at Brands Hatch.

"The finale was followed by an impressive gala dinner on the Monday night, and to have four Formula 1 World Champions in the same room as a bunch of hungry young drivers who have all been representing their countries made for a pretty special atmosphere!"
