This year’s event will feature the largest ever contingent of current and former Formula 1 drivers, including the likes of Rubens Barrichello, Vitantonio Liuzzi, Jaime Alguersuari, Pastor Maldonado, Jérôme d’Ambrosio and Adrian Sutil. Former F1 drivers Gianni Morbidelli. Nelsinho Piquet, Enrique Bernoldi, Antonio Pizzonia, Ricardo Zonta, Luciano Burti, Christian Fittipaldi and Lucas di Grassi will also be competing.
