Super Aguri F1 Limited is delighted to announce that its late entry application to participate in the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship has been accepted by all 10 of the current F1 teams. Super Aguri F1 Limited will now apply to the FIA to complete its Championship entry application.
The Japanese-owned team has been working around the clock to ensure it makes the Bahrain Grand Prix deadline. It will conduct operations from its base at the Leafield Technical Centre in Oxfordshire, UK, in conjunction with the A.Company Inc. head office situated in Tokyo, Japan.
The team has been intensively recruiting personnel for every department to enable it to be ready in time to join the F1 fraternity at the first race of the season in March.
Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal, Super Aguri F1 Limited:
"I am very happy to be able to announce that all 10 F1 teams have approved our late entry to the Formula One World Championship today. I would like to thank all of the teams for approving our late entry and assure them that the Super Aguri F1 team will cooperate and do our best to reach your expectations. We appreciate your support and we will not let you down."
Daniel Audetto, Managing Director, Super Aguri F1 Limited:
"I am very proud to be part of the new Super Aguri F1 team. We are looking forward to joining the F1 grid for 2006 in Bahrain and to becoming increasingly competitive as the season progresses. Of course we do not expect to be on the pace straight away; we will use the first GP's to train the team before our definitive car reaches the track."
