Aguri test, but call off 2008 launch

Tue, 12 February 2008, 04:26

There were positive and negative signs for the future of the struggling Super Aguri team on Tuesday.

After some notable absences recently, the Japanese outfit, with Takuma Sato in the cockpit, returned to test action at Jerez.

But on the sidelines, it emerged that the Aguri Suzuki-led camp has called off the scheduled launch of its 2008 campaign and car at Barcelona on February 19.

Instead, Suzuki and technical boss Mark Preston will be available for interviews, with any formal launch – and the announcement of a driver lineup for 2008 – now not likely to take place until the team has travelled to Australia for the first race.
