Organizers of the A1 GP series have announced details of the third season, just eight weeks before the first race gets underway at Zandvoort.
As in 2006/2007, there will be 11 rounds, with the championship beginning in the Netherlands and finishing at Brands Hatch in the UK in April 2008.
The only race not confirmed is the third round, however, it is widely speculated that a new deal with the owners of the Sentul track in Indonesia is just days from being agreed.
Commenting on the third season's race calendar, A1GP chief executive officer, Pete da Silva said: "This year's race calendar sees a few changes and the addition of one new venue which I feel reflects the evolution of this fantastic racing series.
"A1GP is growing throughout its markets, developing an exceptionally strong fan base across Asia. Our provisional television ratings clearly demonstrate that we have created a firm foothold in one of the biggest emerging markets in the world and it is for this reason that we are delighted to have the opportunity to return to China twice again this season. 2007/08 is going to be a bigger and better season with so much to look forward to."
In 2008, A1 GP will face a new threat from the GP2 Asia and Speedcar series, which features former F1 racers such as Jean Alesi.
