Zaugg signs up for Auto GP
Adrian Zaugg has become the latest driver to sign up for the fledgling Auto GP championship
The 23-year-old Singapore-born South African will partner Julian Leal in the Trident Racing team for the season opener at Brno this weekend.
Zaugg has previously raced for the team in the 2009/10 GP2 Asia series, scoring a point in the first race of the Bahrain round in February.
It will also mark Zaugg's return to driving the Lola-Zytek car that will be used in Auto GP, as he won three races for South Africa in the A1GP series for which the car was originally designed.
Zaugg raced in A1GP between 2006 and 2008 and has also raced in GP2 and World Series by Renault during the last four years.
He joins former F1 driver Giorgio Pantano and ex-GP2 racer Luca Filippi in signing up for the series.
The new Auto GP series is replacing Euroseries 3000 this year and is designed as a GP2 feeder class. It is run by former F1 team boss Enzo Coloni.
