Guillaume Moreau is to make his A1 Grand Prix debut for France during the second pre-season test at Silverstone, while Loic Duval has also been recalled to take part over the two days.

Duval made several appearances for the team last season, scoring four podiums in the eight races he competed in and helping France to fourth place in the overall standings.

The 25-year-old, who has been racing in the Formula Nippon series this year, will return to the cockpit alongside newcomer Moreau and Nicolas Prost, who was recently revealed as the team's rookie driver for the 2007/08 season.

Jean-Karl Vernay and Nicolas Lapierre made an appearance for the team in the first Silverstone test as France consider their options from a pool of young talent.

Despite his inexperience in an A1 GP car though, Moreau is likely to be a popular candidate for the seat after impressing in Formula 3 and most recently in the World Series by Renault.

"Moreau has been good in the World Series car,' said general manager Eric Boullier. "And it will be good to see Loic in the car again after he ran so strongly for us last season."
