Enrico Toccacelo is testing for Conquest Racing at Road America today, leading to speculation that the Italian is being lined up as replacement for Andrew Ranger after the Montreal race in the last weekend in August.
Toccacelo, who finished runner-up to Vitantonio Liuzzi in Formula 3000, is currently some three seconds off the pace of Conquest incumbent Charles Zwolsman, but is expected to improve as he familiarises himself with the daunting 4.048-mile course in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
Toccacelo won the Nurburgring round of the 2004 F3000 series on his way to finishing ahead of such as Robert Doornbos, Tomas Enge and current GP2 star Jose Maria Lopez.
