Stefan GP has announced via a website statement that it will be testing its Formula 1 car at the Portimão circuit in Portugal towards the end of February.

The Serbian outfit has made much of the fact that it wants to join the 2010 grid, despite all 13 team slots being filled. The team remains hopeful that at least one team (throught to be USF1 or Campos) won’t be able to make the grid, which would leave Stefan GP in the box seat. The team recently announced it had already purchased the stillborn 2010 Toyota F1 chassis, engines and gearbox.

The website’s statement announced that the Stefan GP S-01 will be on track from 25 to 28 February with technical support from the Toyota Motor Group.

Additionally, the statement added that its driver line-up is yet to be established, but that it has secured the services of a driver with two years’ racing experience in F1. Given the tie-in with Toyota, would it be unwise to assume that this driver might be Kazuki Nakajima?
