Karthekiyan to be signed by Jordan Midland

Narain Karthikeyan is expected to be announced as the first of the Jordan Midland drivers within the next day of so. The appointment will give Midland a massive amount of publicity in India where, no doubt, the company will want to make some investments and find new customers. The 28-year-old Indian has been offered the drive and is understood to have accepted the offer. The team is in the process of major change with the new management trying to put together a team as members of the old team are departing. The team's sporting director Trevor Carlin knows Karthikeyan well having run him in Formula 3 and in Formula Nissan.
