International Formula Master (IFM) will host an open two-day testing session at the Hungaroring circuit on 6-7 November, where the fastest rookie will be rewarded with a 2009-specification NT Formula Master single-seater to use in the 2010 IFM season.

The open test will also allow potential Formula Master drivers to participate for free during the morning session of the first day.

All current Formula Master teams will be present for their first 2010 driver evaluations, alongside outfits expecting to enter the new Formula Master light programme next season. Both the current NT Formula Master single-seater and the 2007-2009 specification Tatuus FR2.0 car will be eligible to take part.

"We have received a lot of interest in the main Formula Master and the new Formula Master Light class since announcing our plans for 2010," said International Formula Master's General Manager Alessandro Alunni Bravi.

"The open testing days will allow our Formula Master teams to evaluate the several new drivers who have been in touch over the past few weeks, whilst the Formula Master Light class makes its debut on track with new teams and racers.

"As an extra incentive, we are offering a Formula Master single-seater to the fastest rookie testing a Formula Master car, which will be available for the winner to drive in the Formula Master category in 2010.

"In addition, our Formula Master teams have agreed to offer drivers half a day of testing for free, which includes one set of new tyres. This is a great opportunity for everyone involved or, planning to be, to get started on the 2010 season."

Drivers will be considered rookies providing they have never taken part in an official International Formula Master event prior to the Hungarian open test days, be it races or official testing sessions.
