With Walter Grubmuller unavailable due to other commitments, Spanish Formula Renault and F3 star Roberto Mehri will come in for the event alongside regular Hitech man Max Chilton as the team takes a brace of 17-year-olds to Holland for the annual coming together of racers from Britain and the Euroseries.
Chilton, the youngest ever driver in Formula 3, has had mixed results in only his second season in single-seaters. He took a podium at his first race of the year at Oulton Park and scored pole position in Monza this year, becoming the youngest ever, and followed that with a repeat at Rockingham.

Merhi is one of the stars of the 2008 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Championship despite being in only his first season in the series. Two podiums and two other top seven finishes in the opening five races put him fourth in the points standings, while he collected a point in the last round of the FIAT Spanish F3 Championship in Valencia.
