Team Japan driver in the A1 Grand Prix, Hayanari Shimoda is hoping for another strong result at the ninth round of the championship as he enters his second race meeting with technical operations taken care or by the Super Nova organisation.

The Japanese entry in the A1 Grand Prix started its campaign in the inaugural season of the championship with operations looked after by the Carlin Motorsport squad which also runs the Team Portugal and Team Lebanon entries.

Team Pakistan were being run by Super Nova, but now with a shuffle of the pack it's the Japanese car that's being looked after by the squad, whilst Team Pakistan driver Adam Khan takes an extended time to recover from his injuries sustained in South Africa.

In Indonesia Shimoda scored his best A1 Grand Prix in where he qualified fifth and finished ninth in the Sprint race scoring two valuable points.

This weekend Hayanari is looking for another good qualifying result and two finishes in the points in Mexico on one of the more technical tracks on the A1GP calendar.

"This track looks really good! Very special with many unique corners," explains the Japanese. "It's not been used for a while so the track speeds will increase as we drive on it and it gets cleaned.

"It's a really interesting mix of slow speed and high speed corners. I was pleased with the qualifying position in Indonesia so I want to be in the top six again here. I'm looking forward to getting into the car again and seeing how it feels to drive here."
