A1GP Fans to Vote for their Winners The A1GP World Cup of Motorsport fans are being given their chance to vote for their personal choice of winners from the 2008/09 season. All they have to do is visit the series web site, www.A1GP.com and decide who they think deserves the accolade in each of the listed categories.
The annual A1GP end-of-season awards are a chance to reward the outstanding performances of the season, and not just those who finished at the top of the points’ tables. The teams and drivers are all keen for your votes which will be the culmination for them of a hard, action packed season of racing.
The gongs are usually determined by an impartial expert A1GP panel, but this year – through A1GP.com – the series is giving fans from around the globe the chance to pick the winners of four awards for Season Four.
While we already know A1 Team Ireland, A1 Team Switzerland and A1 Team Portugal are the gold, silver and bronze medal winners this season, these awards showcase different skills. A1GP and a panel of experts have made a short list for each category, but the ultimate winners will be decided by the fans. The awards up for grabs are Best New Driver, Best Overtaking Move of the Season, Most Improved Team and A1GP.com Readers Favorite Team. For full details on the awards, who is nominated and how to vote, visit A1GP.com. Voting closes on Friday 5 June 2009.
