Star Mazda January Test: Team GDT (updated)

The official Star Mazda Sebring International Raceway test is coming up next month:  January 23rd-24th, 2010.  A few teams have already finalized their driver lineup for the test.  I will submit each as I receive them.

Team GDT was the first to submit their roster.  It looks like this:

The Team GDT testing lineup looks pretty solid.  Kyle Marcelli will bring a fair amount of experience with him to the test and should be a valuable asset to the team.  Corey Lewis and Ashley Freiberg have both shown a ton of potential and I’m looking forward to watching their development in 2010.  Stay tuned for future updates.

**updated** Neither Kyle Marcelli or Ashley Freiberg will test for Team GDT this weekend at Sebring as initially reported.  They have been replaced by Richard Kent and Carlos Conde.

Carlos Conde ran five Star Mazda events in 2009.  His best finish was 16th, which occurred in Race-1 at Autobahn in Joliet, Illinois.

Richard Kent competed in 12 Star Mazda events in 2009 with Andersen Racing.  The 21-year-old Brit would be an excellent addition to Team GDT.  He is yet to sign with anyone for 2010.  Last season, he finished 7th overall in the Star Mazda Championship with 2 wins, 4 podiums and 4 pole positions.
