Khalil Beschir, the 23 years old A1GP driver for Team Lebanon is on his way to sign a 3 years contract with the potential 11th Formula 1 team in 2006, Honda B-Team.

Beschir who made lot of impressions in the European F3000 championship this year and on the inaugural A1GP race in Brand-hatch last month after a spectacular rolling crash while he was running in a strong 7th position, will be one of the test drivers of the new Honda team to support Anthony Davidson and Takuma Sato who will be the official drivers said a dismayed Honda source.

Beschir’s manager who has strong relationship with BAR and its team manager Del Ferran after managing him in his career, is trying to get a special testing program for his young driver alongside his two A1GP seasons to let him be ready to fight on the 2007 Formula 1 Grid, knowing that Beschir racing experience is only 11 races before his debut in the A1GP series this year.

So Khalil Beschir is now on his way to be the first ever Lebanese and Arabian driver in Formula 1.
