Indy Lights race winner James Davison will test an IndyCar for Andretti Autosport at Palm Beach international Raceway on Thursday.
The Australian, who is the cousin of V8 Supercar drivers Will and Alex Davison, will drive the car raced by Mike Conway this year. Gustavo Yacaman, who won at Baltimore on his way to fourth in this year's Indy Lights series, will also sample the car on the same day.
I'm really excited to have my first IZOD IndyCar Series test with Andretti Autosport at Palm Beach," Davison said. "I have worked very hard for an opportunity like this and I fully intend to maximise it."
Davison picked up one win on his way to second place in the 2009 Indy Lights points, adding to the victory he picked up during his rookie season a year earlier. He has also raced in Champ Car Atlantic and, more recently, Grand-Am.
