Jordan Grand Prix was an Irish Formula One constructor that competed from 1991 to 2005.The team is named after businessman and founder, Eddie Jordan, and were well known for a 'rock and roll' attitude which added colour and character to Formula One in the 1990s. In early 2005, the team was sold to Midland Group, who competed for one final season as 'Jordan' before renaming the team as MF1 Racing for the 2006 season before being sold later in 2006 to Dutch car manufacturer Spyker and then sold again to become Force India in 2008.

The Jordan 197 was the car with which the Jordan Formula One team used to compete in the 1997 Formula One season. It was driven by Ralf Schumacher and Giancarlo Fisichella, who were both in their first season with the team. Ralf was a complete rookie to F1 and Fisichella had only a part-season with Minardi behind him. It was seen as a gamble on the part of Eddie Jordan to recruit two young, inexperienced drivers to replace Rubens Barrichello and Martin Brundle. After a disappointing season in 1996, the team seemed revitalised for 1997. The car gave Jordan the chance to seriously challenge the 'Big Four' teams of that time - Williams, Ferrari, Benetton and McLaren. After a couple of races to get going, Schumacher and Fisichella scored points at almost every race (apart from a barren spell at the end of the year) and took three podium finishes. Fisichella was particularly impressive and there was a behind-the-scenes battle for his services in 1998 between Jordan and Benetton. The only downside to the 1997 season was the failure to score the team's elusive first win in F1. The car was also notable for its distinctive bright yellow livery, as title sponsor, Benson & Hedges chose to change the colour from gold. The cars also had a snake painted on either side of the nosecone, a forked tongue that extended back around the sides of the driver's cockpit and numerous scale effects on other parts to the car. When Grand Prix were held in countries that did not allow tobacco advertising, the cars were labelled 'Bitten & Hisses' instead of 'Benson & Hedges'.

1997 was a season of mixed results for the Jordan team finishing fifth overall in the constructors' championship. Chassis number 197/03 was powered by a Peugeot V10 engine and was driven by Giancarlo Fisichella. Fisichella's most notable achievements were second in Belgium and third place in Canada. Complete in Jordan livery and signed by Eddie Jordan on the nose cone, this piece of Formula One history is supplied without the engine and gearbox, thus making a superb piece of office art or a great addition to a static display. The striking bold yellow is synonymous of the Jordan team and the eye catching snake on the nose cone was affectionately known as 'Hissing Sid'.
