Entry List Revealed as GP3 Testing Resumes in Jerez


The GP3 Series resumes its pre-season testing with two days at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain. The test sees the newly arrived Hilmer Motorsport team make their series debut having missed the Estoril test last month.

The drivers yet to be confimed to rides that are testing in Jerez include Carmen Jorda at Koiranen GP, Nelson Mason at Hilmer Motorsport, Pal Varhaug, Christopher Hoher and Adderly Fong at Jenzer Motorsport, Denis Nagulin at Trident Racing, and Richie Stanaway and Alfonso Celis Jr at Status Grand Prix.

For Hoher and Nagulin, it will be their first tests this year, while Mason will test for Hilmer having tested originally for Trident in Estoril. The rest of the drivers all tested for the same team in March and thus are more than likely to be confirmed as race drivers prior to the season.

Red Bull backed Alex Lynn and Carlin topped the timing screens in Estoril and will be amongst the ones to look out for again here, as well as his team-mate Emil Bernstorff. The three ART Grand Prix drivers of Alex Fontana, Marvin Kirchhofer and Dino Zamparelli, plus the three of Arden International cars of Robert Visoiu, Patric Niederhauser and Jann Mardenborough should be up near the top. Dean Stoneman at Marussia Manor Racing and Nick Yelloly and Stanaway should also be amongst the fastest drivers on track.

The test runs tomorrow and Friday, while the season begins at the Circuit de Catalunya, also in Spain, in May.
