A1GP: Brands Hatch season finale in photos

A1GP may have faltered during its fourth season, with delayed cars and cancelled races, but it also showed it still knows how to put on a good show.

Here is a selection of photos from the season finale at Brands Hatch, where Ireland saw off the challenge of Switzerland and Portugal to take the title and where Dan Clarke coaxed a final points finish from the wreckage of the British season.

From the pre-race publicity, featuring the home teams and the defending champion Swiss, to the bustle of the pitlane, the excitement of the races and the joy of the Irish in victory, A1GP’s photographers caught it all.

All photos come courtesy of the series, which was – for a second year – kind enough to grant us media rights.

    Awesome weekend for Team Ireland, with a fairytale ending. Two poles and two race wins at a sun soaked Brands Hatch.
    Not the most exciting racing but we got the result we were looking for.
    The speculation is: Adam Carroll is he set for F1 or America or defend his title for Team Ireland?
    Who knows?

    The world’s at his feet… for the next five minutes, until the team owners forget. I reckon he’ll end up in America, where he’ll stand or fall on how quickly he can learn ovals. I wouldn’t personally risk pinning my hopes on any team with plans to enter F1, only on teams already there. Whichever way he goes, we have our fingers crossed for him.
