30/11/2009

World Series by Renault driver Oliver Turvey is to drive the McLaren at this week's three-day test at Jerez.

The 22-year-old has already undergone a seat fitting at the McLaren HQ in Woking. He has also been thoroughly prepared by the team's engineers ahead of the test, which will take place in an MP4-24 - the car raced by Lewis Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen this season.

"I've gone over this moment so many times in my mind, so it's very exciting to be getting this opportunity to test with the team at Jerez this week," he told the McLaren website. "My aim is to enjoy the experience, but also to learn as much as I can from it. If possible, I'd also like to be able to help the team with their preparations for the 2010 season."

"We're extremely proud of our commitment to young talent," added Martin Whitmarsh. "A drive in a race-wining Formula 1 car is every racing driver's dream, and I'm sure Oliver will use this week's test as the perfect opportunity to broaden his experience as he continues his successful single-seater career."
