Di Grassi signs up for Gold Coast 600
21 September 2012 – Lucas di Grassi, Pirelli Formula 1 test driver, has been confirmed on the line-up for this year’s Gold Coast 600 race in Australia. The race will be staged on 21 October.
Last weekend, the Brazilian competed with Audi in the six-hour race at Interlagos. He has also agreed to become the development driver for the FIA’s new Formula E electric championship which begins in 2014.
Di Grassi made his F1 debut with Virgin Racing in 2010, but was dropped at the end of the season in favour of Jérôme d’Ambrosio who was in-turn replaced by Charles Pic.
