Midland announces Pastorelli

The Midland Group has announced that Nicky Pastorelli is to be the team's official test and Friday driver next year. The 22 year-old Dutchman tested for the team on three occasions last year, running at Silverstone in April, at Santa Pod in May and then at Monza in August.

Prior to that he had tested for Minardi after winning the European 3000 series in 2004. Pastorelli also tested for the Walker Racing Champ Car team at Sebring last winter.
