Date set for Spyker arbitration case

Spyker's arbitration action against Super Aguri and Toro Rosso over the use of customer cars will be heard in court for the first time on October 9.
The Silverstone-based team have challenged the right of Super Aguri and Toro Rosso to use what it believes are customer cars this season.
Following protests at races earlier on this season, Spyker took the matter to the International Chamber of Commerce in Lausanne for a final verdict.
And despite Spyker's own position in the constructors' championship being better than it was at the start of the year, with them currently ninth after Adrian Sutil's eighth place finish in Japan, the team have vowed to press ahead with the matter.
The hearing next Tuesday is just a preliminary hearing to kick start proceedings, with the day only likely to lay out a timetable for further discussions.
