Benson and Hedges Jordan Honda is delighted to announce the appointment of its new Head of Composites, Stephen Taylor.

Taylor will join the team on Monday 9 July 2001, bringing a wealth of experience from over a decade in Formula One.

Joining Jordan's strong technical line-up from his position of Chief Designer at Sauber, Taylor began his motorsport career as a project engineer with Advanced Composites Group before moving to Gentech UK, where he was responsible for the composite design on the Larrousse F1 project between 1992 and 1995. His following five years' experience in composite construction of primary structures at McLaren has further increased Taylor's breadth of skills and expertise.

Commenting on his appointment, Jordan's Head of Engineering, Tim Holloway said, "Stephen's broad experience will add tremendously to our existing engineering team within the composites field and we look forward to welcoming him to Jordan."

"I'm greatly looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that such a forward thinking team as Jordan can offer," commented Taylor. "Composites is my field of expertise and this is the area within Formula One that I really enjoy and in which I would like to further my career and knowledge."

-Jordan
