Dragon Racing will field Super GT racer Andrea Caldarelli and Mercedes-linked Formula 3 racer Maximilian Günther in next month's Formula E rookie test in Marrakesh.

All 10 Formula E teams will stay on in Marrakesh for an additional day following the E-Prix on January 13 in order to field two-car entries to the rookie test that is open to any driver who does not hold an e-licence.

The backmarker Dragon team has become the latest team to confirm its line-up, with Caldarelli set for his first outing in a single-seater for almost three years. The Italian driver has enjoyed links to Toyota throughout his racing career, testing one of its Formula 1 cars back in 2008.

Günther, 20, finished third in this year's FIA European Formula 3 championship behind Lando Norris and Joel Eriksson, and is yet to confirm his 2018 racing plans.

The Mercedes-backed youngster will get his first taste of a Formula E car in the Marrakesh rookie test, with the German manufacturer poised to enter the championship with a factory team from season six, starting in 2019.
