Minardi have confirmed further details regarding their forthcoming Vallelunga test in Italy, scheduled for November 21-24.

In addition to the previously announced British racer, Katherine Legge, and regular Minardi tester, Chanoch Nissany, Uruguay's Juan Caceres, plus Luca Filippi and Davide Rigon from Italy will also take part in the four-day session.

Over the last three seasons, Caceres has rapidly climbed the single-seater racing ladder, winning the Portuguese Formula BMW title in 2003, before moving to the Spanish F3 Championship in 2004, and the Italian F3000 Championship, with GP Racing, in 2005.

The inclusion of Filippi and Rigon in the test comes as the result of an undertaking the Faenza squad gave earlier in the year to provide two young Italian drivers, selected in a joint driver-search programme by Italian motorsport bodies ACI/CSAI, with their first taste of Formula One performance.
