    Autosport.com is reporting that Aguri Suzuki will confirm tomorrow that his team will run the second Honda Formula 1 team.

    Suzuki to unveil new team plans

    Former Grand Prix driver Aguri Suzuki is set to confirm his plans tomorrow to enter a Honda-backed team in Formula One, although it is not clear whether he still intends to make the jump next year or wait until 2007.

                most teams sorta needs more than a year to get ready!
                BAR took at least a year and you see the instant results they got!

                    Same could be said for the IRL or NASCAR, but Chip runs both, plus a Rolex team, and does pretty well in all three.
