Brands Hatch Entry List Confirmed

Teams are allowed to nominate up to three drivers for the weekend, who they can alternate between the free practice and race sessions.

The German team have nominated F3 Euroseries runner Adrian Sutil alongside Timo Scheider, and the team will make a decision with regards to racing this weekend after today's free practice sessions.

Sutil said: "Each of us will have one hour. Whoever is the faster at the end of the day will race this weekend."

Alvaro Parente has been confirmed as A1 Team Portugal number one driver instead of former Lotus F1 racer Pedro Lamy, with the newly crowned British F3 champion competing in the first six races.

Parente told Autosport-Atlas: "It will be good for me to be in the shop window against some top GP2 drivers, and not just watching this winter."

The Italian team has drafter in Formula Renault driver Nino Piccoli as their number two and the South African team have nominated former world Rotax Max karting champion Gavin Cronje as their second driver to Stephen Simpson.
