The latest Prost Grand Prix test driver back to business Jonathan Cochet takes World Series drive.

Jonathan Cochet, who was the latest Prost Grand-Prix F1 Test Driver, will participate in the 2003 World Series by Nissan Championship in the GD Racing Team.

The Team and Didier Poulmaire, Jonathan Cochet's lawyer, have announced that they have signed an agreement by which the French young gun will drive for GD Racing for the full 2003 season.

Cochet, who was in close contact with F1 and CART teams during last winter, will have his first contact with the new Dallara Nissan racing car at Jarama (Spain), where the first meeting of the Series will be held this week-end.

Jonathan Cochet has declared "I am very happy to participate to this high level championship which is now placed second in the European motor racing scene, just behind Formula 1. As a consequence of its capacity to attract people and sponsors to the circuits, the World Series has succeeded in bringing together top drivers with international prestige. I am quite confident that people will be very excited by the show offered by such professional drivers and teams. This opportunity will allow me to have a very complete racing program in 2003, composed of the Word Series and a sport prototype program including the prestigious 24H Le Mans race. In addition, I am still in discussion with F1 and CART teams to have the opportunity to do some tests during this season."
