A1GP World Cup of Motorsport has announced that Magneti Marelli is to be the official technical partner of the series for the 2008/09 season. Under the terms of the agreement, A1GP will utilise Magneti Marelli electronic systems in many key areas of the new A1GP Powered by Ferrari cars.
Using the Magneti Marelli modular design engine and gear control system, A1 Teams will benefit from increased data logging capability, 100% real-time telemetry cover, and reliable integration with all other control units on the car. The system currently controls the gearbox, data logging and all steering wheel functions.

Reliability has been excellent during the test programme, with no problems encountered in over 7,500-kilometres of testing throughout Europe.”

It was an interesting technical challenge, we have applied our technology to a new and different area with regards to data logging, gearbox control and steering wheel, so showing how flexible our solutions are, and what a high-level of performance they have.”
