Team Stargate Worlds and HVM Racing will test Swiss driver Simona De Silvestro, a four-time winner in the 2009 Atlantic Championship, at Sebring International Raceway today and tomorrow (December 8 and 9).
The test will be a combined effort with Team Stargate Worlds, the group that De Silvestro finished third with in this year's Atlantic standings.
“Simona has been impressive in Atlantics and could certainly have a future in IndyCar,” said Keith Wiggins, HVM Racing team principal and owner. “This trip to Sebring is going to be sort of a litmus test to see if there's potential for future collaboration with her and Team Stargate Worlds.”
HVM Racing will enter its third season in the IndyCar Series in 2010. The team returns Robert Doornbos to the #33 HVM Racing car and is also exploring options for its second car.
