It was early in 1994. I think it could even be this car at this test -
The pic was gleaned from the interweb and I believe Fosters sponsored the British GP at the time. Also the B193B test car had the KTEL sponsor, whereas later B194's didn't as far as I know. Being testing in Britain - would they have been allowed to run in Ciggy sponsorship livery???
I think testing is much different to the race itself. I think the tobacco ban rules don't apply.
Here are some Silverstone test pics from 1995:
I think its great you've decided to collect JJ's cars. I think he was extremly unlucky to have a major injury during the 1994 season. Sort of like Perez going to McLaren and McLaren producing their worst car in over three decades. I was very happy when JJ won his second Le Mans and very sorry his Indycar career didn't take off either.
