Adrian Zaugg is back.

That means that South Africa stands a good chance of collecting points at this weekend's A1 Grand Prix meeting in Beijing, China. The race is the second street race in the series after Durban successfully hosted it earlier this year.

Zaugg, who has been tied to his commitments with the Red Bull team and missed the Hungarian race, will want to prove his grand showing at the series opener in Holland was no fluke.

He won the sprint race there only to crash out in the feature race. The second race saw South Africa end as an also ran, under Steven Simpson.

In this, the third event of the 2006-07 season, Zaugg will pilot Vulindlela through a 3,1km street circuit around the Jingkai exhibition centre in the industrial area of Beijing.

The nation's hopes will be pinned on the 19-year-old driver. If his first showing is anything to go by, then we are in for a thrilling weekend.

SABC is broadcasting the qualifiers at 8am to 10am tomorrow morning. The races will be screened between 8am and 10.30am on Sunday.
