SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM commenced its proposed three-day test at the Circuito de Jerez in southern Spain today with Takuma Sato undertaking the team's initial driving duties.
Both the morning and afternoon sessions saw the team concentrate on running more mileage with the 2008 MES system.
The SA07B interim car ran reliably all day, allowing Takuma to complete a number of longer runs during the afternoon whilst evaluating a number of chassis set-ups in order to learn more about the car's performance.
