HRT to unveil new car

HRT will show off their new car for the first time when they carry out a filming shakedown at the Circuit de Catalunya on Monday.

The Spanish team has been absent from the two pre-season test events at Barcelona but will finally be present at the circuit after the rest of the teams have finished their work.

The F112 will be unveiled and will head out on track for the first time during a promotional day of filming.

Narain Karthikeyan will be at the wheel on Monday, with fellow race driver Pedro de la Rosa and reserve Dani Clos also present.

HRT have been thwarted by delays in the development of their challenger for the 2012 season after the car failed mandatory crash tests.

It was originally scheduled to be launched in February but was put back to the start of March and then delayed again until after the final pre-season test.
