With just two weeks gone from the end of the 2009 GP2 Main Series season, Trident Racing is ready to get back on-track in the 3-day collective session scheduled from Tuesday at Jerez. The Spanish venue will host over 40 drivers, including several valuable rookies.

Trident Racing will be lining-up four pilots on the team's two Dallaras. Edoardo Piscopo will drive the first car on Day 1, before leaving the seat to Stefano Coletti and then rejoining on Day 3. The second car will be taken on-track by Johnny Cecotto Jr. on Day one. The Venezuelan will hand keys to Czech Filip Salaquarda for the remaining time.

The testing opportunity at Jerez will provide the team with a good occasion to follow in its technical development and being enabled at the same time to test four valuable youngsters looking for a GP2 Series Chance.

Maurizio Salvadori, Team Owner.

"We'll be glad to have the opportunity to test four young drivers at Jerez. This collective session represents a good chance to get in touch with them, while evaluating the possible developments for the upcoming Asia Series and Main Series. We plan to try more young drivers in the following test at Paul Ricard, before collecting each other's impressions and draw some conclusions."
