Holloway on the move
Tim Holloway has been hired by Jordan to assist Gary Anderson in his design and race engineering duties.
Holloway is 44 and is a close collaborator of former March boss Robin Herd. He was trained as a rocket research engineer and worked with the British Ministry of Defence before joining March Engineering in 1977. He has been involved with Herd ever since, working from 1987-1990 as director of engineering of March F1 and then as a designer with Herd's Fomet 1 and Larrousse UK Ltd companies. He was also involved in the Oldsmobile Aerotech research car project in 1987 - with which AJ Foyt claimed the fastest recorded lap of a closed circuit (257.123mph) on the 7.7-mile oval at Fort Stockton, Texas - and in the March-Porsche Indycar operation in 1991. Last year he worked as design and race engineer on Erik Comas's Larrousse.
Holloway's recruitment by Jordan completes the Jordan engineering line-up for 1995 with Andrew Green continuing to engineer Eddie Irvine and Gary Anderson overseeing both cars.
