F1 EXPERIENCE FOR FANS IN FACTORY GROUNDS

Jordan is making use of its proximity to Silverstone this weekend to put on entertainment for fans visiting the Grand Prix, after an immensely popular "Jordan Village" debut last year was visited by up to 800 fans a day. The 2004 "Jordan Experience" is a village of marquees housing an array of activities including: Jordan F1 simulators and games, on site bar and food, a prize draw for VIP Test day passes, drivers overalls, original car parts and autographed items, official team memorabilia for sale, live music, F1 pit stop challenge games, an EJ14 race car on display and for those without Grand Prix tickets, a giant screen showing qualifying and the race. Eddie Jordan and all three drivers will make appearances to meet fans and sign autographs throughout the weekend.

MANSELL THRILLS FANS IN REGENT STREET

Nigel Mansell wowed the crowds in London yesterday as he led the parade of F1 cars in Regent Street. An estimated 500,000 people packed the streets to be entertained and Mansell didn't disappoint - starting the display with inch-perfect "donut" spins on cold tyres as he came out of the pits and repeating the stunt as he finished the first ever drive of a Formula One car in London.

Nigel Mansell said "It's marvellous. To be here driving F1 cars at speed in the heart of the capital of England is just great. London is a magnificent city and is demonstrating to the world that it is capable of putting on any event it wants and a Grand Prix at a street circuit here would be the best race in the world! Formula One is the pinnacle of motorsport - and always will be - it's the most fantastic sport man has ever developed on this earth. It's been such fun and a joy to bring it to the fans. I'm looking forward to the British Grand Prix and I hope it's a good race - I just wish they could accommodate the number of people that were cheering on F1 in London this week!"

SILVERSTONE SPECIAL GUESTS

The "original" B&H Jordan pit babes, Melinda Messenger, Emma Noble and Katie Price will be reunited at the British Grand Prix this weekend as guests of Benson & Hedges. The girls who have made successful careers in modelling and TV first found fame in the 1990s and were exceptionally popular in the pit lane as they posed with the Jordan car and drivers Damon Hill and Ralf Schumacher in 1998. English Premier League stars James Beattie (Southampton FC) and Wayne Bridge (Chelsea FC) along with Aston Villa FC manager David O'Leary will also be among the team's guests.

MESSAGE FROM BAHRAIN

At the British Grand Prix, the Message from Bahrain on the EJ14 engine covers is the emblem of Save the Children. Save the Children, the UK's leading international children's charity, is delighted to be the chosen charity for the Bahrain and Jordan Ford drive in profiling humanitarian issues at the British Grand Prix. Save the Children has over 80 years experience working with vulnerable children worldwide and this fantastic branding opportunity will help Save the Children build its profile and grow its supporter base which are key in achieving more for children around the globe.

GIORGIO PANTANO AND TIMO GLOCK DRIVE DODGEMS!

Jordan drivers Giorgio Pantano and Timo Glock will be allowed to crash into each other on Friday 9 July 2004 when they drive in the dodgems celebrity challenge at the British Grand Prix Ball at Stowe House.
