Local driver Sebastian Stahl to start at the A1 Grand Prix series finale in Shanghai

AIRNERGY user leads Team Germany

(Hennef, 31 March 2006) When the eleventh race in the Grand Prix of Nations series takes place in China at the weekend a young driver from the Rhineland will be flying the flag for Germany -
Sebastian Stahl. The 27-year-old from Neunkirchen will make his first start in the 520-bhp A1 Grand Prix machine and hopes to make it a successful debut.

Born in Bonn, he is following in the footsteps of Timo Scheider and Adrian Sutil, who between them have amassed 38 points in the previous ten races this season.

France have already been crowned champions ahead of the finale of the inaugural season of the Grand Prix of Nations series. The German team currently lies 15th.  Sebastian Stahl will be trying to gain ground in the overall rankings with two good races in the Far East. The newcomer is well aware that this will be no easy task. "If you look at the drivers in the other national teams you see just how strong the field is", says Stahl, conscious of the challenge facing him. Indeed, there are some impressive names on the grid, some with previous Formula 1 experience and others about to join the sport's elite. The Dutch team, for example, is led by none other than Jos Verstappen.

Despite the fierce competition and the fact he his making his debut in A1, his chances of finishing well are not bad. Having won the Seat Leon Supercup title in 2004 and finishing runner-up in the
Alfa 147 Cup in 2002, Stahl has already made motorsport experts sit up and take notice. In 2005 he also showed his mettle in the 600-bhp GT1 Saleen and in the Porsche Supercup. The native
Rhinelander has proved his ability on many other occasions including the Formula König championship and several long distance races.

The 27-year-old rising star is in good physical shape for the race too. Like many of his colleagues and other athletes, celebrities and a wide range of other users, he is a firm believer in AIRNERGY
technology. It helps the young star from Neunkirchen build up the concentration and fitness levels which are so important in motor racing. Breathing AIRNERGY regularly complements his training
schedule.
