Reports that Spanish youngster Adrian Valles has landed a Spyker test deal are gaining momentum.
The newspaper ‘Marca’ now claims that the 20-year-old GP2 racer last week put pen to paper on a one year deal that will be announced at the launch of the Dutch team’s 2007 car on Monday.
‘Marca’ also reveals that Valles’ management is pushing for a one-off race seat for the Spanish grand prix in May.
It is further understood that Valles, who finished just sixteenth in the GP2 standings last year, secured the Spyker seat with the aid of backing from the ‘Circuit de la Comunitat Ricardo Tormo’ – Valencia – track.
He made his F1 test debut with the team at Silverstone last September.
