Auto GP gets 14-driver field for first 2014 test at Valencia

Reigning champion team Super Nova will run Canadian Gianmarco Raimondo and German Markus Pommer alongside its already confirmed 2014 signing Michela Cerruti at the test.

Prior to participating in four GP2 races for Trident last year, Raimondo was runner-up in the 2012 European Formula 3 Open championship.

Sometime Formula 2 man Pommer, who had secured a GP3 seat with Russian Time before the team's restructuring forced a change of plan, returns to single-seaters after contesting last year's Porsche Supercup.

Fellow Norfolk team Virtuosi UK will field cars for Slovakian Richard Gonda and Belgian Sam Dejonghe, who starred in the Indian-based MRF series over the close season.

Andrea Roda has agreed terms with Virtuosi to continue for a second season in the category, and the Italian is also set to test.

Zele Racing completed its roster of drivers earlier than several of its competitors. Series returnees Tamas Pal Kiss and race winner Sergio Campana are set to complete the season, however, the latter will miss Tuesday's Valencia test owing to clashing commitment. The Italian's place is to be filled by compatriot Antonio Spavone.

Campana's fellow 2013 Auto GP title contender Kimiya Sato will sample MLR71 by Euronova machinery alongside team owner Michele La Rosa.

Sato has secured a GP2 seat with Campos for this season, but AUTOSPORT has learned that he also intends to contest a partial Auto GP programme.

Gentleman racer Giuseppe Cipriani's Ibiza Racing Team will field Turin-based Auto GP regular Francesco Dracone.

Series newcomer Puma 3 M-Sport's freshly revealed line-up of Kevin Giovesi and Loris Spinelli complete the testing entries.
