If all goes to plan, Morgan will then then head to a UK circuit for a couple of days at the end of February, before undertaking a full programme of testing during March ahead of the BTCC season curtain-raiser at Brands Hatch at the end of the month.
As for the longer-term future, Morgan makes no secret that he wants to become a fixture in BTCC for years to come.
"If I can, I'd still like to be in the BTCC," he said when asked where he saw himself in five years time. "It's been my dream ever since I started racing. I love touring cars: the atmosphere, the crowds. I'd be well happy to get a works contract one day."
Asked which drivers he admires and looks up to the most in the series, Morgan started by singling out one former champion returning to BTCC in 2013 after three seasons away racing in WTCC.
"Colin Turkington is coming back," said Morgan. "Jason Plato is incredibly experienced and talented, and the same goes for Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden. You look up to those guys - but at the same time I am racing against them.
"While I want to learn from them, I don't want to be giving them too much room to beat me!" he added.
