Nicky Pastorelli will be a Jordan Grand Prix test driver, the team announces today. The 21 year old Dutchman, reigning Euro 3000 Champion, is the first driver to be officially included in the "Young Driver Programme" initiated by MidlandF1 to help promising junior drivers develop their talent in preparation for entry to Formula One.

Colin Kolles, Managing Director of Jordan Grand Prix said, "We have been watching with interest the development of Nicky's career. He's quick and has demonstrated that he is a winner so we are pleased to be able to bring him on with the opportunity to learn F1 as our test driver. We're looking forward to working with him."

Nicky Pastorelli commented, "I am very excited about this opportunity and I would like to thank Jordan for placing their trust and confidence in me. Getting some laps in the car at the Barcelona test last week was an unexpected but fantastic experience and I want to do a good job for the team now as an official test driver. I'm looking forward to my next F1 outing."
