Dean Stoneman is set to make a return to the motor racing scene when he tests a World Series by Renault car in Spain next week. The Englishman, F2 Champion of 2010 and who enjoyed a Williams Formula 1 test as a result, was soon after diagnosed with testicular cancer but is now fit enough to enjoy a return to the cockpit.
A member of the BRDC’s SuperStar programme, Stoneman has been forced to sit out of 2011 as he underwent treatment to recover from his illness; since being diagnosed in January, he has undergone major surgery plus two courses of chemotherapy.
The 21-year-old will be in action for the Formula Renault 3.5 test at MotorLand Aragón, which runs on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, with the ISR team which housed Daniel Ricciardo and Lewis Williamson this year.
“We are obviously delighted that Dean will return for the test with ISR,” says Stephen Noakes, manager for Stoneman. “Since his operation, Dean has been slowly recovering and working on his fitness and he now feels the time is now right to get back into the car and use the test as part of his rehabilitation for 2012.
“ISR have been tremendous in keeping the door open for Dean this year and we thank them for their amazing support during a very testing year.”
