Representing North America along with United States, Canada made their final preparations for the A1 Grand Prix championship at Brands Hatch, ahead of the first two official practice sessions on Friday.

Having announced their participation only a couple of weeks ago, Team Canada have not had much time to get ready for the challenge ahead but having topped the timesheets earlier in the week, hopes are high that Sean McIntosh can deliver on the day.

"Testing at Silverstone on Monday was great. There - it was good to show that I could get in a new car and go quickly. Everything's very new. Sunday's feature race is twice as long as anything that I'm used to," McIntosh mused.

"The Grand Prix circuit is new to me too. We all need to focus on doing our best. I think we're capable of running at the front once we're up to speed. This weekend's going to be very interesting - especially if the British weather comes into play too. I'm just going to take it a session at a time and perform to our best. At the end of the day the results will come," he continued.

Running Team Canada track side is veteran single seater man, John Village - a shrewd operator if ever there was one.

"The team has come together very quickly and Sean did a fantastic job on Friday getting his first taste of the car," says Village. "We have high hopes that A1 Team Canada is going to start the next chapter in the story of Canadian motorsport to follow on from the international successes of the Villeneuves.

"Canada has some fantastic circuits and a really strong motorsport heritage so it's great to be involved with the next generation of racing."
