IFM drivers to earn Chevrolet test

International Formula Master and Chevrolet have entered into a partnership which will see a test in Chevrolet's latest WTCC challenger, the Cruze, offered to one of top drivers in the single-seater series.

Chevrolet will also provide the official course car partner for the series this season, which will run alongside the World Touring Car Championship on its return to Europe for a third year.

"We are looking forward to seeing a Formula Master driver at the wheel of one of our cars," Chevrolet Europe Motorsport Manager Eric Neve said. "The Series is a strong part of our weekend, and we always keep an eye on how well its young drivers are doing. It will be good to see how one of them fares at the wheel of our world touring car. This partnership, which will give additional visibility to the new Cruze, fits perfectly with Chevrolet's fresh and dynamic image."

Marcello Lotti, general manager of KSO, said he was pleased to see the two series working together.

"It's very satisfying to see bridges being built between key partners of the WTCC to help talented upcoming drivers in motorsport," he said. "Formula Master has always worked with that goal in mind and I'm glad to see one of our WTCC teams working closely with them."
