Super Aguri have put back the unveiling of their 2007 car to the Wednesday prior to the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

The launch had been scheduled for Monday, March 12 in Japan, but race drivers Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson will now reveal the SA07 two days later in the Albert Park pitlane

“Please accept our apologies for the change of launch date,” said Super Aguri in a statement. “We are working relentlessly to prepare our 2007 challenger which will unfortunately not be available for presentation on the 12th March in Tokyo as originally planned.”

Super Aguri have spent the winter testing with an interim car, so the new machine’s first proper test is likely to be the two Friday practice sessions - extended to 90 minutes each for 2007 - in Melbourne.
