Super Aguri F1 has been confirmed for 2006.

Bourdais has been confirmed for the Daytona 24 hours with Doran Racing. That car was fifth fastest in qualifying one.

Said has relanded a 24 hour ride after losing his original because he was too tall to fit in the car. He most likely "became" too tall after the car was adapted to hold Danica Patrick. His new ride is with Tuttle Racing.

Fifteen cars and sixteen drivers showed up to the Phoenix IRL test on Tuesday and Wednesday. The two Ganassi drivers followed by the two Penske drivers topped the charts, indicating the AGR Honda advantage is gone. Marco was 14th fastest. Scheckter shared a Vision ride, he is on the verge of signing with them, adding a second car to the team. Cheever, Panther, Hemelgarn, did not make an appearance. Each are struggling to field one car for next year. Fernandez had two cars, Matsuura in the Aguri ride, and Sharp with Delphi on the sidepods. That Delphi sponsorship is obviously very questionable. Rahal had three cars amoung the slowest five. Team Rahal and Scott Sharp wre the only ones driving Panoz chassis.
