The Midland Group is pleased to announce that current FIA GT Championship driver and 2003 FIA GT World Champion, Thomas Biagi, will be testing for the team at Jerez, Spain next December.

Biagi will also participate in the Bologna Motorshow in November.

Colin Kolles, Managing Director of Jordan Grand Prix, stated: “Thomas Biagi has been very successful in different motorsport categories especially in the FIA GT Championship. He won the Championship in 2003 with six wins and he is presently fighting for the lead in this same Championship this year. I’m glad that we are able to offer him his first F1 test so that he can show his potential and I am convinced he will do a great job for the team.”

Thomas Biagi said: “After a successful career in World GT races I’m delighted to be able, for the first time, to show and understand my level of performance with a Formula One car. Conscious about the importance of this test, I’m getting ready doing an intensive training program. I want to thank the Team to have believed in my potential, giving to me this opportunity. As well I recognise the important job of my manager, Eva Baldassin, to achieve that.”
