That actually is a pretty decent schedule, I wonder if these events are actually popular? Because from what the TV cameras show, the grandstands are empty. Perhaps the person bankrolling it has more money then sense? Still, good tracks there.

A round at Brands sounds good, hopefully a few more teams get involved next season and perhaps some better drivers too. I have to admit the way they do qualifying is a pretty good idea imo.

Well that's not Autosports fault, other websites published it too. It came from Superleague themselves.

Two questions about the Brands Hatch event:

1. Brands GP track has a certain number of days that the GP section can be used, so is another existing series going to be sacrificed for Superleague.

2. Won't Superleague be boring around Brands, where will they overtake? A1GP was completely dire around Brands Hatch, I don't see how Superleague will be any better.

they do seem to be able to overtake on tracks where everything else can't, apparantly I haven't watched a race but i here there is some very good racing.

Such a shame it's not a real motorsport

Football! does not work in motor racing. I don't like seeing football teams in racing BUT the cars do sound nice.

I hate the thought of Motorsport and Football mixing but I have enjoyed watching soem of the reason this season, Am ashamed to admit it.

The racing from Estoril and Spa was worth watching. A lot more then some F1 races this season IMO.

I must say, the Superleague cars do sound epic. But I hope its more of a success then A1GP, because under the football concept, its just another open wheel series. But, I suppose football is vastly more attractive to the general public then nation v nation.

where do you get that idea?

now whats the thing where lots of running and jumping happens every few years isn't that nation verses nation in a way.

A1 should have been a touring car series with more than 1 seat per nation. So there could be 5 team spain drivers.

In the Olympics, though, the runners and jumpers etc. are the best the country has to offer.

I suspect that if A1GP had attracted Lewis Hamilton to drive for GB, Alonso for Spain, Schumacher for Germany, Webber for Australia etc. etc. it would have seemed more attractive, but - let's face it - to the population as a whole who the hell are Olly Jarvis and Robbie Kerr??

For a large percentage of the population motorsport IS Formula 1... I bet if I asked in the pub who'd heard of Jenson Button most if not all would have done, if I asked who'd heard of Dario Fanchitti they'd probably all scratch their heads, and if I said "Jamie Green" they'd look even more bemused.

Whilst we might think that the combination of football and motorsport is a bad thing, if you think of the way that football fans tend to work it is actually quite sensible. In the same way as people have heard of Jenson Button they've heard of Liverpool, Man Utd., Real Madrid, AC Milan... I suspect that negates some of the problems A1GP have with the "who the hell is driving?" because the brands are so familiar.

We have a "Team GB" in many disciplines, only a very small number have mass market appeal.

Indeed, fully agreed Sean.

The difference between the British team in the olympics and Team GBR in A1GP, is that the olympics team feature the very best of Britain. I cannot honestly say that Robbie Kerr represents the best of Britain, and is famous to the average person. So that just means all A1GP is, is yet another junior open wheel series. None of the drivers want to be in A1GP, they are their for the same reason that drivers go to F3, GP2 etc - to improve their racing skills and progress to higher categories.

I don't like Superleague, but 'AC Milian', 'FC Porto and 'Liverpool' are far more recognisable and worthy to the public then 'A1GP' with Robbie Kerr. The football brands are so strong, that they have the potential to create interest regardless of who is driving. Saying that, I still cannot picture the average football fan going to a motor race - but its more likely then A1GP's proposition.

Whether its wrong or right, Formula One is the only type of motorsport that the general public will watch.

Maybe to promote the Liverpool car they could throw in free beach balls Laughing
