Recently crowned Formula 2 champion Nyck de Vries will test an LMP1 car for the first time in December's World Endurance Championship rookie test with Toyota.
The new Mercedes Formula E driver, already a WEC regular with the Racing Team Nederland LMP2 outfit, is one of four drivers named by the WEC for the one-day test that will take place on the Sunday following the eight-hour Bahrain race.
De Vries will be joined by factory BMW driver Mikkel Jensen, rising LMP2 star Job van Uitert and Blancpain GT Series racer Vincent Abril, with each driver assigned to one of the four title-winning teams from the 2018/19 superseason.
Jensen, who has raced in the Intercontinental GT Challenge and European Le Mans Series this year, joins the Signatech Alpine LMP2 squad, while van Uitert and Abril will take part in the test for the factory Porsche and Proton Competition GTE squads respectively.
WEC CEO Gerard Neveu said: "It has been very rewarding to see the progress of our 'rookies' from previous years, and the perfect example of this is Thomas Laurent, now a Toyota Gazoo Racing reserve driver after first testing the LMP1 car in Bahrain in December 2017.
"Endurance racing offers long and successful racing careers for those that choose it, as has been demonstrated by the presence of so many top names in the WEC."
A full Bahrain WEC rookie test entry list will be issued in due course. Five hours of running, split between two sessions, is due to be set aside for the test.
