Super Aguri F1 Team is pleased to announce its partnership with Virgin Atlantic (Japan) for the 2006 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka.

The one-race agreement sees the Virgin Atlantic branding on the team's SA06 cars and Takuma Sato's race helmet for Round 17 of the FIA Formula One World Championship this weekend. Virgin Atlantic and SAF1 Team driver Takuma Sato have already enjoyed a three-year personal partnership and are happy to extend this relationship to incorporate the team this weekend.

Virgin Atlantic recently announced that it has teamed up with ANA (All Nippon Airways), an existing partner of the SAF1 Team. This new collaboration will allow Virgin Atlantic passengers to fly onwards in Japan on ANA's domestic services. The deal will also allow ANA travellers to fly on Virgin Atlantic services from ANA destinations on the Virgin route network. In addition to this arrangement, Virgin Atlantic Airways and ANA will be releasing a special joint round the world (RTW) fare utilising the networks of both carriers.

Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal, Super Aguri F1 Team:

"Following the collaboration between Virgin Atlantic and our existing partner ANA, I am very happy that the team is able to receive support from Virgin Atlantic. Having the two world renowned airline companies as SAF1 Team partners gives us great confidence. We now have only two races left in this season, but we hope that will able to show our partners performances that are worthy of their support."
