TIM EDWARDS JOINS FORD PERFORMANCE RACING

March 10, 2005 - Ford Performance Racing (FPR) announces a new senior appointment to take charge of the Prodrive owned Australian V8 Supercar Team.

Tim Edwards joins FPR with outstanding motor racing and sports management credentials gained from his humble start as a Melbourne Ford dealer apprentice motor mechanic, to occupying several senior managerial roles with one of the world's most renowned Formula One teams.

After successfully completing his apprenticeship at the Box Hill College of TAFE from 1984 to 1988 while working with Melford Motors, Tim pursued his ambition of working with a motor racing team in Europe. At the age of 21, Tim headed to England and joined compatriot Alan Docking's Formula 3 and Mazdaspeed Sportscar team as a race team mechanic.

In 1989 Tim joined Richard Lloyd Racing as lead mechanic for their World Sports Prototype Team. He was responsible for ten technicians, playing a hands-on leadership role in car build and development processes while broadening his motor racing technical abilities.

The establishment of the Jordan Formula One Grand Prix team in 1991 presented an opportunity for Tim to work in the world's premier motor racing category. He successfully applied for a position with the new team, starting as a race mechanic. This was the beginning of a 14 year career with Jordan Grand Prix that would cover every area of the team's ever expanding operations. The experience gained during the following decade resulted in his appointment as Team Manager in 2001, where he remained until 2004. Along the way to this role, Tim had occupied the positions of Number One Mechanic, Chief Mechanic and Technical Operations Manager / Test Team Manager.

Tim returned to Australia in December 2004 to join the organising committee for the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games in the role of Special Advisor - Sport.

Tim Edwards will join FPR as Motorsport Director at the end of March. He will have total responsibility for all the team's technical and sporting activities while also representing FPR with AVESCO and TEGA.
