Renault F1 driver Romain Grosjean will enter two rounds of the Andros Trophy ice racing series.
Grosjean, who contested the second half of the 2009 season with Renault after they sacked Nelson Piquet Jr, will drive a DA Racing Renault Clio in the Alpe d’Huez round this weekend, and then at Lans en Vercors on 15-16 January.
He will become the fourth driver in this year’s series with F1 experience, joining double Andros champion and four times world champion Alain Prost, 1996 Monaco Grand Prix winner Olivier Panis, and two-time Ligier driver Franck Lagorce.
Grosjean’s F1 prospects are currently unclear, and it was widely viewed on the basis of some mediocre outings for Renault that he would be unlikely to retain his Renault seat, even before the present uncertainty over the future shape of the company’s F1 involvement.
At least there’s plenty of snow for Romain to plough into!
