Marussia F1 driver Jules Bianchi and IndyCar racer Simona de Silvestro will be among the entries for the first Florida Winter Series run by the Ferrari F1 team's young driver academy.
Bianchi, FIA Formula 3 champion Raffaele Marciello, Formula Renault ALPS winner Antonio Fuoco, and fellow FDA member Lance Stroll will all take part in the new four-round series which starts on January 22, according to Ferrari's website.
Ferrari, which launched the new four-round series for ex-Formula Abarth cars last month, said Bianchi would dovetail his participation with testing duties for Marussia.
The site also lists European F3 Open champion Ed Jones, fellow F3 racers Dennis Van de Laar and Nicolas Latifi, GP3 driver Luis Sa Silva, plus ALPS racer Alex Bozak and karter Leonardo Pulcini as participants.
The series takes place across four rounds at Homestead, Palm Beach and Sebring between January 22 and February 19 next year.
