The McLaren Mercedes team will run British driver Paul di Resta during four days of testing later in October.
The 22-year-old Scot, currently in second place in the DTM standings, will take to the Silverstone circuit today and tomorrow and again on October 20-21.
McLaren are bringing di Resta in as part of the Young Driver programme that allows teams to carry out further testing during the season without the burdens of mileage and tyre restrictions.
The 2005 McLaren Autosport BRDC award winner is currently racing for Mercedes-Benz in the DTM.
