GP2 driver Daniel de Jong to race in selected Auto GP events

De Jong finished fifth in Auto GP last year with the Dutch team, and also made eight starts in GP2 for Rapax.

The 20-year-old has moved across full-time to GP2 with MP, which has taken over Coloni's entry in the series for 2013.

But he will also make a few Auto GP starts for the team, where he will join full-time drivers Riccardo Agostini and Meindert van Buuren.

Auto GP series boss Enzo Coloni said: "MP motorsport is the first team to announce a three-car line-up for the 2013 season.

"The presence of Daniel de Jong offers our series and drivers a chance to race against a GP2 contender, increasing the general level of competition."
