The BMW WilliamsF1 Team today confirmed that Giorgio Pantano and Vitantonio Liuzzi would conduct testing duties for the team at the forthcoming Valencia test, commencing on November 26. Both drivers will share three days of testing responsibilities.

Giorgio Pantano, the 23 year old driver from Padova, Italy, was the runner up in the FIA International Formula 3000 Championship in 2002 with Coloni. Prior to this, he served an impressive apprenticeship including claiming the German F3 title in 2000, together with a string of national, European and world kart titles.

Pantano will be joined by fellow countryman, 21 year old Antonio Liuzzi, who completed a strong season in the German F3 Championship with Team Red Bull BSR, after finishing runner-up in the 2001 German Formula Renault Championship, as well as claiming the FIA/CIK Karting World title in the same year.

The test of both drivers forms part of the BMW WilliamsF1 Team's ongoing commitment to developing young talent.
