German 21-year old Timo Glock will drive for Jordan Ford tomorrow on the first day of the team's four day Barcelona test session. Glock finished fifth in the new Formula 3 Euro Series Championship last year.

Tim Glock said, "I am proud to be invited to do a test with Jordan Ford as it has been by biggest dream to drive in Formula One. I am quite nervous but as always I will do my job to my best ability and as soon as I sit in the car I will be ready."

Eddie Jordan said, "Timo Glock is probably the most promising young driving talent in Germany at the moment and I'm delighted that we are able to offer him his first F1 test. He's come up through the junior categories quickly and with good results so I'm optimistic that he will be very significant in the future of German motorsport."

Timo Glock began his motorsport career in 1997 at the age of 15, winning several karting championships and the BMW Formula ADAC Series in 2000 and 2001 before finishing third in his first International Formula Three Series in Germany in 2002, when he was awarded "Rookie of the Year".

He finished fifth in the International Formula 3 Euro Series last year, winning three races and achieving a further three podium positions in the series, competing against Christian Klien and Ryan Briscoe, who have also secured driving roles in F1.
