Arrow McLaren SP has confirmed earlier reports that Stoffel Vandoorne will run a test with the team next month.
The test will be run at Sebring Raceway on December 6, the same day as fellow Formula E driver Nyck de Vries will be testing with Meyer Shank Racing.
Vandoorne drove for McLaren in F1 for three seasons from 2016-2018, and is the current Mercedes F1 test driver. That relationship has helped give the Belgian driver a path to the upcoming IndyCar test with Arrow McLaren SP.
AMSP has been evaluating multiple drivers in the past couple months, including Nico Hulkenburg in late October.
The eventual goal for the team is to find a driver and sponsorship in order to expand to a three-car team as early as the middle of the 2022 season.
For now, however, Vandoorne’s test is a one-off session as both he and the team evaluate mutual interest and options for the future.
AMSP’s current driver lineup of Pato O’Ward and Felix Rosenqvist has already been confirmed to be unchanged for next season.
