BAR tests 2004 concept car

This is BAR's new hybrid 2004 test car, a specially-liveried 'concept' machine that will be at the centre of BAR's winter development programme.

First tasks for the car are in evaluation of the team's 2004 engine and rear-end package and in working for the first time with Michelin tyres, following the team's split with Bridgestone, announced today.

Jenson Button is at the wheel of the '04 concept car in a three-day programme at Barcelona, while Takuma Sato works with this year's BAR 05 .

BAR technical director Geoffrey Willis commented: “This week's programme is essentially the start of our 2004 season. We have made significant advances for next year with both engine and transmission."

Shuhei Nakamoto, engineering director for Honda Racing Development, said: "We are excited about seeing our new engine put through its paces on the track. It is lighter, more compact and has a lower centre of gravity than last season's unit."

BAR is planning a much more extensive test programme this winter. Willis explained: "Another major technical development is of course our move to Michelin tyres. We are embarking on a steep learning curve in order to re-optimise our car, and we are planning to conduct substantially more testing than we did prior to the 2003 season."
