Harada to Test for Coloni

Former MotoGP star Tetsuya Harada is looking to restart his career on four wheels after retiring from motorbike racing at the end of 2002, by testing for Italian Formula 3000 in June with Coloni Motorsport

Harada's tearful retirement announcement just over two years ago seemed to be the end of his racing career, but after lengthy discussions with Coloni team principal Paolo Coloni he is considering a racing comeback at the age of 35.

"For sure we think he could be a good driver," Coloni told Autosport-Atlas, "and we will give him a test very soon in one of our Formula 3000 cars to see what he can do.

"If the test is good then we will look at running him in either Formula Three or Italian Formula 3000."

Coloni Motorsport is strongly represented in Italian Formula 3000, and is an official supplier to the series. A date and location has not been set for the test, but Coloni advised that it will be within the next month.

The next two races in the series will be held on June 5 in Brno, ahead of a race in Imola on June 19.
