Adam Khan made a solid comeback to A1GP action as the Team Pakistan driver returned to action in the penultimate round of the season at Laguna Seca.

Khan was returning to competition for the first time after being injured during the South African round on the streets of Durban with the team having also missed the rounds in Indonesia and Mexico as a result.

Having started from 21st place, Khan took advantage of others misfortune to produce a 15th place finish in the wet sprint race before making further progress in the feature race to finish eleventh - just missing out on a points finish in the process.

"The sprint race was very very tricky," he said. "I dropped back at the start so that I could see - the visibility was so bad. I had my foot covering the brake for much of the time. I took the strategy that in these conditions I had to drive carefully, stay out of trouble and let the others do their own thing. It was fundamental to finishing the race.

"In the Feature race I got up to about thirteenth by overtaking on the first lap. Unfortunately the pit lane is tight here so the team decided to wait a lap to avoid congestion which lost me time and dropped me to 19th. I managed to pass a couple of cars and recover and then picked off more and kept up the pace.

"Overall I'm reasonably happy. It was a good comeback after such a long injury layoff. I'm pleased that we could recover the position after a bad qualifying and I'm looking forward to China and scoring points there."
