01/16/12 A group of mainly Dutch investors is preparing a relaunch of the A1 Grand Prix series under the name A1 World Cup. The website has a clock www.a1worldcup.com, with another 28 weeks until something happens. Furthermore, the plan's still fairly unclear.
Behind the initiative is the Dutch company Primrose. A spokesman for the company said "Unfortunately, I currently have little say. Over the coming months, A1 World Cup will present itself the press with the information it intends to make available, when this is appropriate."
"The role of Primrose I can explain – We invested with a group, mainly Dutch investors, for the restart of the A1 Grand Prix. This group looks like a Dutch initiative to resurrect A1 Grand Prix races in 2013. This was done before with A1P, but this time we plan to run it for a profit, not a loss."
