Adam Carroll will hope for more solid results for A1 Team Ireland this weekend as the A1GP season gets back underway at the Taupo circuit in New Zealand.

After two difficult seasons for the Irish, the 2007/08 campaign has seen the team take giant strides forward with the GP2 racer having carried Ireland to seventh in the standings.

Now, Carroll and the team will aim for further progress through the remainder of the campaign, with the focus very much on fighting for a maiden win.

"It's the best season so far," he told "This time last year we were joint last with one point and now we are seventh in the championship and not too far away from fourth - which is what I think we need to aim for. There are a great bunch of guys in the team and we need to put it together and get some consistent top finishes and some podiums.

"It's like any team, the good guys have been together for three seasons now and you don't realise how it is until you go and race in the championship as there are so many good teams and engineers involved. It is very tight and very hard, but in the third season it is closer than ever at the front between the top five or six teams.

"I hope we get stronger, we are learning with every weekend about little things that make the cars tick. It has taken us a little bit of time but I hope we can get stronger and fight for a win and a few podiums."
