After a few weeks of rumors, it was confirmed this evening that Simona de Silvestro will indeed test a Indy Car this week at Sebring International Raceway with HVM Racing–in collaboration with Team Stargate Worlds.

Simona, 21, drove in the Atlantic Championship this season with Team Stargate Worlds and in the process became the winningest female in U.S. open-wheel history.  She ended her 2009 campaign with 4 wins, 9 podiums, and 4 pole positions.

At this point, nothing is set-in-stone but it’s looking increasing likely that a joint effort between HVM and Team Stargate Worlds will be formed to field the Swiss driver in the 2010 IndyCar series.

It would be great to see Simona make the jump to IndyCar in 2010.
