"The new car should be a handful with all that power," said Daly. "Although we have not put our full program together yet, I did not want to miss any of the new car testing with my friends at ART Grand Prix (formerly Lotus GP)."

Daly has had a busy winter contesting the Indian based MRF Challenge Championship, which he won after winning the final round in Chennai on February 10th. "My winter has been a bit hectic and my travel schedule to India a little crazy but I can't wait to get back to European testing," said Daly. "India was a really unusual experience for me but the testing and race mileage I got was well worth the effort. Now its back to what we might call normal."
