Burti confirmed at Jaguar Racing
JAGUAR RACING has confirmed that Brazilian Luciano Burti will be its test driver for their 2000 season, supporting EddieÊIrvine and Johnny Herbert. Burti is expected to compete in the International Formula 3000 Championship next year but it is unclear which team he will join and it may be that we have to wait for the announcement of an official Jaguar Racing Junior Team before that becomes clear. The team is planning a big announcement in London on January 25 but intends to run the Formula 1 car in testing prior to the launch. Many of the components for the new car will be run in December on the existing Stewart-Ford SF3 chassis. Irvine is due to have his first runs with the team at Jerez on December 13.
