Sato and the A1 GP Series

BAR driver Takuma Sato is reported to be driving Japan's entry in the A1 GP series later this year. The suggestion, published on the pitpass.com website, which is well-connected in A1 GP circles, is that Takuma will take over the Japanese car after the F1 season ends in three weeks from now. Ryo Fukuda drove car at Brands Hatch and Hideki Noda is supposed to be racing for the team at some point but the appearance of Sato would obviously be a big bonus for the team and for Sato himself. The connections are obvious as the Japanese team is being run by Carlin Motorsport, with which Sato won the British Formula 3 series in 2001.
