Err in that case they better have some pretty damn good trackside lighting, as last time I looked, the only lights A1GP cars had was the rear brake light like F1 cars.
Does anyone else get the feeling A1 GP has an element of making the rules up as it goes along?
It's just that the few times I've been to the official website to check stuff like their rules on pitsops etc, all the articles I try simply say "coming soon". I hope this is just a sign of the web designers being lazy and sorting out stuff like webcasts first, because a sport like this without rules is simply ludicrous.

Hrmm I wonder what we could see in the dark even with the lights on. I bet that the first driver out of the race is TEAM NZ. They ar completely BLACK! OMG. Interesting to see the outcome

"You just don't mess with Jacques Villeneuve" - Murray Walker, 1997 Hungarian GP.
"When Jacques was with us, he was a very aggressive driver, fiercely competitive, mentally hard as nails. Very quick with it, very gifted. A bright fellow, undoubtedly, very intelligent. He was an absolutely born racing driver - look at the way he'd bang wheels with Michael, pass people on the outside, that kind of thing" -Sir Frank Williams on Jacques Villeneuve
"This year, with BMW, JV's going very well, and I'm pleased for him. Whether or not he'll get a drive next year I don't know, but I hope he does, he's an unusual, and very strong addition to the F1 community. A character." - Sir Frank Williams again on Jacques Villeneuve

I've been to night races too many times to remember, 30+ years of local Sat. night stock cars plus I've been to 4 or 5 NASCAR races run at night, the cars will have paint schemes that show up well under the lights and the tracks are well lit............

exactly, and quality lighting is probably far easier to set up on an oval than a technical track like Sepang, or will they just be forcefeeding the drivers truckloads of carrots?

We won’t be having 'night races' in F1…JPM can’t even see an exposed drain cover in broad daylight!

Why single out JPM, theres quite a few drivers from the past few years that couldn't either. Kimi for instance, he can't even see a flatspot on his own tyre, even when it's slowing him down.

It has been proven beyond reasonable doubt by all the reasonable posters that JPM not avoiding the exposed drain cover was driver error. Regarding Nurburgring 2005, Kimi was well aware that his car was damaged but he and big Ron decided not to pit and try and go for the win…they almost made it.

I was providing ONE example... and KR and RD just showed how stupid they are trying to overdrive a broken car, when they could still have had solid points after a stop. and guess what, those few points might have helped Kimi win the WDC but he threw them away... but hey that's Kimi's consistent style lately.
I ask again, why single out JPM when there's plenty of other examples?
(try reading the question instead of my comments outside of it?)
