Mazzacane to get Arrows test as speculation heightens over PSN

ARGENTINE Gaston Mazzacane will shakedown the Arrows A21 at Silverstone on Friday as speculation increases over his backers Pan-American Sports Network (PSN) linking up with the Leafield-based team.

Mazzacane was expected to front Minardi's challenge in 2001 but PSN pulled out of a deal to buy a majority share in the Italian outfit and has since been said to be aiming for a deal with Arrows.

He will shakedown the car in preparation for the team's December tests in Jerez, Valencia and Barcelona and was at the team's Leafield base for a seat-fitting and briefing on Monday.

Spaniard Pedro de la Rosa and Dutchman Jos Verstappen will be behind the wheel for the Jerez and Valencia tests while Mazzacane will be given his chance to prove himself in Barcelona.
