Benson and Hedges Jordan-Peugeot Press release Nigel Mansell and Eddie Jordan met today at Jordan Grand Prix's headquarters. After a lengthy discussion Nigel, winner of 31 Grands Prix, has accepted an invitation to test a B&G Jordan at Barcelona next week on December 11th and 12th. In accepting the invitation, Nigel said: "It's 20 years since Eddie and I raced aginst each other in Formula Ford. We are old friends, and I'm delighted to have this opportunity to reac- quaint myself with a Formula One car." Eddie Jordan added: "I've asked Nigel several times over the years to drive one of my cars, but the timing wasn't right. Now it is. There's no commitment from either party beyond the test. "Nigel is Britain's most successful F1 driver of all time and its an honour for everyone at Jordan Grand Prix to give him this run." No further comments will be made by either party until after the test.

1,000,000,000,000 sounds so nice.
