Jolyon Palmer will take part in both days of the official GP2 testing at Jerez in Spain next week with leading teams iSport and Barwa Addax. The 20-year-old moved to GP2 for 2011 with Arden, as one of just a few rookies, and put in some promising performances.

At Jerez, Jolyon will undertake the first days testing on Wednesday 28 September with the iSport squad, before moving to Barwa Addax on the Thursday.

Palmer, who finished second in the 2010 FIA Formula Two championship, is looking forward to the opportunity: "Moving to GP2 was clearly a big challenge and everyone knows how difficult it is for first year drivers with the limited track time. However, Arden was a great team to be with in my first season and I have learnt a huge amount. I was pleased to put in some encouraging drives but now I'm ready to step up my performance and I'm confident I can be very competitive in 2012, when I hope to continue in GP2."

"I am excited to be testing for both iSport, clearly a top team and frequent podium visitor, and Addax who won this year's GP2 teams' championship. I have a great chance to develop, learn and prove my potential and am I grateful to both teams for providing the opportunity to join them."

Official GP2 testing takes place on 28/29 September in Jerez, Spain, with full coverage on Jolyon's website and Facebook page.
