Ian Dyk reckons a home victory could be on the cards during the coming season now the Australian A1GP event has been confirmed for Eastern Creek.

Dyk was spotted by team principal Alan Jones at the 2005 Eastern Creek meeting, when he won the Formula Three support race and will now aim to make his experience pay when A1GP returns the Sydney venue in February next year.

Havign already been confirmed as the lead driver in the Aussie line-up, Dyk admits that he hopes the team will be in a position to win when the Eastern Creek meeting comes around - with a win on home soil being a possible dream result.

"Certainly as a team we can work towards having our first victory later this season," he said. "Eastern Creek is a circuit I have driven in the past. I have always been competitive in other categories there so absolutely I would love to do well.

"Even though it is halfway through the season, I hope that the team and I can be in quite a competitive state and working well as a team. I'd love to have a win there and I certainly think it's possible."

The first race of the season will again be in Zandvoort, one of the few circuits that Dyk did not get to experience as a rookie driver in 2006/07, and he added that that could make the start of the season difficult.

"It will be a big step for me that one," he said. "I did get to run a few rookie sessions last year and those will be a good platform for us to work from this season. But Zandvoort will be tough."
