The grid’s newest team, Force India, will take a step closer to their maiden Formula One season next week when their 2008 car, the VJM01, makes its official track debut during testing in Spain. The new car will enjoy its maiden run at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya from February 25-27.

Team principal Colin Kolles, chief technical officer Mike Gascoyne, the squad’s race drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Adrian Sutil and tester Tonio Liuzzi will all be attendance at the Spanish track on February 26 to answer questions about the season ahead and discuss the VJM01.

The new car’s gold, white and tungsten livery was unveiled at a spectacular ceremony in Mumbai, India, earlier this month.
