As the manufacturer did last winter, Opel is preparing to run driver assessments in November with a view to next year's signings. The test was originally scheduled for this month, at the Lausitzring, but was cut short due to bad weather.

As previously, there is quite a list of drivers scheduled to take part: former Formula One driver Luciano Burti was one of the participants who missed out at the cancelled Lausitz test and will try again next month. The Brazilian drove in F1 for Prost and Jaguar and was more recently test driver for Ferrari.

Formula 3 drivers Adam Carroll and Alan van der Merwe are also in the line up, along with Euro F3 competitor Timo Gluck and Porche Supercup driver Wolf Henzler.

Thomas Jäger is also a hopeful; the German drove for Mercedes in the Original-Teile team this season, but struggled with a year old chassis. Peter Dumbreck, who was dropped by Mercedes at the end of last season, was taken on by Opel for 2003 after last year's winter assessments and was the manufacturer's top driver this year, seventh in the drivers' standings overall.
