If the first race was a procession then what a contrast the second ever A1 Grand Prix race was at the British circuit of Brands Hatch as Nelson Piquet did the double for Brazil comfortably ahead of no end of action behind.

Piquet found himself behind the Team Australia car of Will Power after pit-stops and safety cars but the plucky Brazilian performed a miracle pass on the outside at Surtees and simply disappeared off hand over fist making a second or two per lap away from Power.

Salvador Duran drove a mature race to take third, withstanding constant pressure from Team New Zealand's Matt Halliday who had to start from the pit-lane.

A big crash mid-way through the race saw the Team Lebanon entry with Khalil Bhashir at the wheel perform a multiple roll after closing the door on Enrico Tocaccelo at the top of paddock Hill Bend.
