Spyker Arbitration Date Set

A date has been set for the customer car arbitration case which sees Spyker against Toro Rosso and Super Aguri. The case will be heard in court on October 9th 2007.

Spyker are challenging Toro Rosso and Super Aguri over the use of what they believe are customer cars during the 2007 season. Spyker believes that their two rivals are in breach of F1 s Concorde Agreement for running development versions of customer cars.

Much has been said over the use of customer cars, particularly in the early part of the season, and Spyker chose to take the matter to the International Chamber of Commerce in Lausanne to seek a resolution.

The hearing on Tuesday is expected to be just a preliminary hearing – it is likely that the day will only see a timetable for future discussions and decisions laid out with little in the way of evidence or talks held.
