More bad news for A1 Grand Prix fans as a second round of the series has been cancelled. The Laguna Seca round scheduled for next weekend has been axed after heavy rain washed the run-off area away and the circuit owners are expecting it to take weeks to repair.
It is the second time a race has been dropped after the Curitiba round in Brazil was removed from the original calendar. It was understood that the California circuit was also due to undergo safety modifications at the behest of motorcycle racers.
The news has not yet been posted on the A1 Grand Prix website. Confirmation of the cancellation will also make the French team the inaugural champions, although hardly in a satisfying manner.
