British Touring Car Championship squad Motorbase will test Formula Ford champion Dan Cammish, Renault Clio Cup title winner Josh Files and three other youngsters at Snetterton on Tuesday.
Cammish, Files and British Formula Ford race winner Harrison Scott will all get runs in one of Motorbase's NGTC Ford Focuses thanks to their results in the BTCC-supporting series this season.
Motorbase will also run Ford Fiesta Junior champions Charles Ladell and James Ross in its S2000 Focus.
All five drivers will work with Tom Onslow-Cole, who switched to the squad from Team Hard earlier this year.
"We do it every year, try and give some young drivers a go in touring cars," Motorbase boss David Bartrum told AUTOSPORT.
"I genuinely believe they deserve a chance. There's some good little drivers out there."
Cammish, who won 24 races from 24 starts in British Formula Ford this season, wants to graduate to the BTCC in 2014, but Bartrum confirmed it was too early to look at possible race deals.
"Dan is very keen to do touring cars and wants to do it in a Ford, but let's see how it goes and what we can do," he added.
