From the braintrust at TrackSide Online:

We just got a note that Super Aguri Panther Racing will have a driver announcement tomorrow at 2:20pm. We don’t have anything official, but believe that we hear Panther announce that Hideki Mutoh will run one of the final two races of 2007 (and perhaps both).

Right now, this appears to be an "in addition" situation and not an "instead" of Kosuke Matsuura deal. But, again, that isn’t confirmed.
In conflict with this report is one from SpeedTV saying Matsuura is indeed gone goodbye. That seems odd since he's practicing RIGHT NOW for Panther at Mid Ohio.

So either Kosuke has a new ICS teammate or he gets to hang out at Union Jack and watch races with Jeff Simmons. We shall see.

    After what happened with Jeff Simmons, I wouldn't be surprised if Super Aguri Panther replaced Kosuki in mid-race weekend.

    Isn't Matsuura bringing personal Super Aguri money though?
