Bleekemolen to Drive 2nd Car

A1 Team Netherlands reserve driver Jeroen Bleekemolen will get his first taste of A1 Grand Prix race weekend action at Estoril, by driving the team's second car in the extra practice sessions on Friday morning

Two, forty-minute sessions have been added to this weekend's programme in order for teams to shake down all the seconds cars, which they will receive prior to this weekend's Portuguese race.

Although Bleekemolen has driven the Netherlands car in pre-season testing, he has played second-fiddle in the Dutch squad to former Formula One driver Jos Verstappen in the first two events.

"I cannot predict where I will be compared with the competition," Bleekemolen said. "The other drivers off course have a lot more experience with the car then me. Normally I am a quick learner and during the tests where I have driven it went very well.

"I hope I will be able to provide a good basic set up of the car for the rest of the weekend. I know the Estoril circuit quite well, because I drove there last year with the DTM, and that was good."
