Wheldon Poised for Guest Drive
Indy 500 winner Dan Wheldon is poised to make guest appearances in Britain's entry in A1 Grand Prix, according to this week's Autosport
Wheldon told Autosport that he is likely to be involved in the Arden-run British squad, and said it would be an honour to represent his country.
Wheldon said: "I spoke with John Surtees last week, and it would be a privilege to do it. To represent your country in a competitive series would be fantastic. I'm a road racer and it looks like a gas."
Wheldon would join 2002 British F3 champion Robbie Kerr and McLaren Autosport Award winner Alex Lloyd in the line up.
"We have looked at the possibility of getting guest drives in the cars particularly once we have two cars and we can run two drivers at the meeting," said Surtees. "Obviously Dan was at the top of the list.
"Robbie is in for the first two races, and it's a team decision as to what to do with possible guest drives."
