Did you know that Pakistan has an ‘A1 Team Pakistan‘ for Grand Prix racing?

I did not, but now I do. Don’t know what to make of it yet, but there is a hoard of information and kool pictures and videos on the team’s promotional site. According to a news promo on the site, the A1 Team finished last season with “Qualified: 14th, Sprint Race: 12th, Feature Race: 5th.” Don’t know how good or bad that is, but the website made it sound like a big deal; and I am happy to take their word for it.

The driver for the team is 20 years old Adam Khan, about whom the website tells us:

Adam Khan is making the most of his second home here in China. At Shanghai International Circuit to see Adam race for the first time is his ‘secondÃ¢à ‚¬â„¢ mother and long time family friend Madam Zhang, daughter of the former Mayor of Beijing, who has given Adam the Chinese name ‘Li Sihan’. Fluent in Mandarin, Adam is obviously at home here and has spent time signing autographs and chatting to the local spectators.

    Not sure if it is the driver you mention, but a ‘Team India’ and a ‘Team Pakistan’ did compete in the Dubai Grand Prix last year… and although niether won, they were reportedly the main attraction, precisely because they were competing against each other.

    Such sports would become doubly interesting in the sub continent if we have Narayan Karthikeyan competing against somebody from Pakistan.
