Auto GP announce promotional test at Magione in October

Auto GP will hold a special promotional test at Magione on 26-27 October in the hope of identifying new drivers for the 2012 season.

Held just over three weeks after the 2011 season finale at Mugello - which will decide a three-way fight for the title - the test will be held with a view to offering potential new entrants a discounted run in the Auto GP car.

The October date follows the announcement of plans to expand into three new continents for 2012, with series boss Enzo Coloni saying both developments provided good opportunities for next year.

"We're still waiting to know who the 2011 champion will be," Coloni explained, "but the teams already have a lot of enquiries and most of them are asking for a chance to test.

"Knowing that the current season has already put a strain on their budgets, we decided together with our Teams and our Suppliers to create this special testing opportunity.

"With such a low cost for the test, teams will choose drivers not looking to their budgets alone but also taking their talent into consideration, opening some very good opportunities for 2012."
