The A1GP World Cup of Motorsport car for the 2008/09 season has continued its testing programme with a two day test at the new look Imola circuit.

Following on from the initial tests at Fiorano, Andrea Bertolini was back behind the wheel of the Powered by Ferrari car at the former Grand Prix venue ahead of another week of testing next week in Spain.

That five day test will take place at the Guadix Circuit as the A1 technical team continues to put more miles on the new machine.

"We've completed about 900-kilometres of testing so far and everything is going relatively smoothly," A1GP general manager, technical and operations, John Wickham said .The car is performing very well and the driver is happy with it; the balance is good and the tyres are working well.

"We haven't done as much testing as we hoped but that's partly because we were waiting on the weather at Fiorano. We ended up just running in the rain in the end but the car looked very quick in the wet! In general the car has been very reliable. We look forward to five consecutive days running next week with the tight Guadix Circuit ideal for further testing of the handling of the car."
