After a mixed weekend at the EuroSpeedway, Team Pakistan will aim to break back into the top ten in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport standings in the final European race of the season in Portugal.

After a seventh place finish in the sprint race at Brands Hatch, the team headed to Germany in confident mood only for Adam Khan to be forced out of race one in the early stages. A 12th place finish in the feature race leaves Team Pakistan 15th in the standings heading to Estoril and Khan said he was aiming to move up the standings with a good result this weekend.

"I completed a Formula 3000 test at Estoril a couple of months ago, so I'll be using that experience this weekend," he said. "As a circuit, Estoril sits in between Brands Hatch and EuroSpeedway in its configuration. Where I had a good performance at Brands Hatch, I struggled slightly at EuroSpeedway, but Estoril suits more my style of driving. The team have shown that we can be competitive and every time I step into the car I'm focused and I'm there to win."

Team Pakistan's chairman, Arif Husain said he was hopeful that Khan would be able to lift the team back into the top ten this weekend.

"Adam Khan and the team had a positive result in the feature race at EuroSpeedway and I'm hoping that we can build on that," he said. "We are currently lying 15th overall in the A1 Team championship so it would be nice to collect some extra points and move back into the top ten, where I believe we should to be. The A1 Grand Prix series is extremely exciting and we are proud to be representing a great nation in the field of motorsport."
