New HRT to debut on Monday
HRT will put the first miles on its 2012 car on Monday as it completes a day of promotional filming at Barcelona.
Failed crash tests prevented the team running at the first Barcelona test and then the car was not ready in time for the final test which ended on Sunday. However, the F112 will be ready to complete a maximum of 100kms at the Circuit de Catalunya on Monday.
"HRT confirms that it will carry out a filming day tomorrow, Monday the 5th of March, at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona," read a statement on the team's website. "The F112 will see then the light and will cover its first kilometres during this promotional filming session.
"Narain Karthikeyan will be the driver in the cockpit on this occasion. Pedro de la Rosa and Dani Clos will also be present to see how the new car evolves."
HRT will have to run the car on harder promotional tyres in order to comply with testing restrictions.
