Jordan completed a one day, straight line aerodynamic test at Elvington Airport in the UK today, with Robert Doornbos behind the wheel. The team's third driver completed 61 runs and tried out new parts for 2005.

The interim chassis featured new front and rear wing configurations and new bargeboards. Doornbos also completed a shakedown of his chassis for Brazil next weekend.

"I'm happy to have been handed this opportunity in order to provide the team with important data for the upcoming GP as well as their preparations for next year's car," he told his website.

"Though I'd hoped to run in dry circumstances, in order to train my neckmuscels more during acceleration and braking, I still enjoyed a positive test in which I learned a lot."

"Not only could I spend much time and attention to all possible settings on my steering wheel, I also had a fine day out with my team of engineers and mechanics."
