Auto GP championship runner-up Virtuosi UK will test Formula 3 graduate Andrea Roda in next Thursday's two-day test at Barcelona.
Italian Roda brings three years of F3 experience from the Euro Series and Italian championship.
"We're very pleased that Andrea is on board, and we look forward to evaluating his skills," Virtuosi UK co-owner Declan Lohan told AUTOSPORT.
"After running Pal Varhaug to the runner-up place this year, there has been a lot of interest from drivers wanting to test with us for one day.
"But we preferred to have someone in the car for both days so that they can really learn the car, and we can get a clearer picture of their potential."
Antonio Spavone, who raced for Ombra and Euronova in Auto GP this year in parallel to a limited GP3 campaign, will sample Super Nova machinery during the test.
Bergamo-based Ombra will evaluate local driver Luca Defendi, a 19-year-old who graduates from Italian Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Abarth.
