Kanaan for BAR next week

Reigning Indy Racing League champion Tony Kanaan, will join BAR Honda at Jerez in southern Spain next week. Kanaan was invited to test by the team in recognition of his IRL Indy Car achievements in 2004 with Honda. The 30-year-old, who drives for Andretti Green Racing is making a flying visit to Europe before heading back to North America for the final round of this year's IRL series in which he is currently lying second but there is only a mathematical chance that he could take the title from his team mate Dan Wheldon.

"Tony has done a great job over the years winning so many races in both the CART and IRL series with Honda-powered cars," says Yasuhiro Wada, the president of Honda Racing Development. "We are very pleased to give him this chance to sample our F1 machinery."
