Ex McLaren F1 driver Kevin Magnussen is among three new drivers that are set to test the Porsche 919 Hybrid next month at Barcelona.
The 23-year-old Dane will join Mitch Evans, who was already confirmed for the Bahrain LMP1 Rookie Test, as well as Oliver Turvey in the two-day test at Circuit de Catalunya on Nov. 10-11.
All three drivers have already gotten seat fittings and simulator sessions in the LMP1 contender last week alongside Juan Pablo Montoya, who will test a 919 Hybrid in Bahrain on Nov. 22.
“We decided to give three young drivers a chance to test the Porsche 919 Hybrid," said team principal Andreas Seidl. “The seat fit and simulator preparation is already done. We are looking forward to the test and will see what the future brings."
