Pics Request: Jari Nurminen testing Arrows
Posted 23 January 2003 - 21:46
As TNF seems to be the place to sort out the weirdest requests, I challenge you all on this one:
A Finn called Jari Nurminen tested Arrows (if I remember correctly) in 1986. Afterwards he went to compete a couple of seasons in F3000 without notable success. Would anyone be able to share pictures of this test?

I don´t know if I will find a picture, but if I don´t, Rainer will.
Keep glued to the screen...

Anyway, here´s your picture, enlarged from a really tiny piece that I found.
I still think that Rainer will come to the rescue

I do also have some videotape from the same Donington Park test session storaged somewhere...

Thanks Felix, an amazing achievement. Shame about the quality though. Anyway, this was a nice Friday-morning teaser trivia for a couple of my friends: name the car, year, track and driver
Now, asking for pictures on Markku "Maximum Attack" Alén testing F1 should be a piece of cake, compared to this Why do I seem to remember, he too was testing an Arrows at around the same time. Perhaps I'm wrong though.

Jari Nurminen in his Barclay Arrows Racing Outfit.
This was a press shot for what was thought to be Jari's entry into Formula One. He wasn't granted a Super License and this deal fell through at the last moment.

A completely off-topic question, have you ever been involved in Formula One? I seem to recall you taking part in a test session at Donington in 1986. Was there any more tests?
The same year I also tested F1 in Belgium
In 86 I drove a lot more tests for Arrows BMW aswell
Arrows also offered me a spot as a race car driver for 1987, but I didn't find the funding for it so I couldn't go along
I had a signed a year long contract with Coloni for Formula 1 -racing for 1988, but it was later scrambled because the Finnish AKK didn't support me for a F1 Superlicense.
