It has been confirmed that former McLaren driver Kevin Magnussen is to take part in a 2 day test session at the Circuit de Catalunya next month along with GP2 star Mitch Evans and former Le Mans 24 Hours winner and McLaren F1 test driver Oliver Turvey. Porsche Motorsports team principal Andreas Seidl Tweeted earlier today (Tuesday 27th October) that all three drivers have already had seat fittings and began work on the team simulator prior to being let loose in the factory 919 Hybrid LMP1 machine on November 10th and 11th. "We decided to give three young drivers a chance to test the Porsche 919 Hybrid,” The seat fit and simulator preparation is already done. We are looking forward to the test and will see what the future brings." Magnussen is not thought to be keen to spend another year on the F1 side-lines in a testing role for another team and with race opportunities becoming increasingly rare, this looks like an opportunity for the young Dane to continue his motorsport education and gives him a shot at joining his father Jan in racing at the Le Man 24 hour race in June next year. Running alongside alongside K-Mag in the upcoming test will be 2012 GP3 Champion and current GP driver Mitch Evans (a protégé of current Porsche driver Mark Webber) and former McLaren teammate Oliver Turvey (runner up at Le Man last season in LMP2). Turvey began his first full season in Formula E last weekend finishing a solid sixth for the NEXTEV Team China Racing team. The latest test is great news for Kevin's aspirations of continuing a professional motorsport career but is also a sad reflection on the state of Formula One when a young driver of Magnussen's talent finds himself with an option to race in motorsports premier single seater series. Do you think K-Mag looking to move to the WEC is the right choice or should he consider perusing his options in Formula One first? Let us know in the comments below!
