British Touring Car frontrunner Andrew Jordan will test a Ford Fiesta rallycross machine next week.
Jordan, who currently lies second in the BTCC standings, competed in rallycross early in his career and took the 2007 British title.
He will now test the Fiesta normally driven by Andreas Eriksson, run by the Olsbergs MSE squad that prepares the factory-backed Fords in the Global Rallycross championship, and is a race winner in the European championship.
"I've spoken to team owner Andreas Eriksson for the last couple of months and he rang me the other day to offer me a test, with the view of working together in the future," said Jordan, who will drive the Fiesta in Sweden.
"Obviously my prime focus is the BTCC, but it will be a fantastic experience to sample the latest generation of rallycross car."
