Euroformula Open racer Antoni Ptak will contest the 2016 Toyota Racing Series with the Giles Motorsport team.

The 18-year-old Polish driver made his single-seater debut in Euroformula Open this year, stepping up the Formula 3-based series from karting.

Driving for top team RP Motorsport, he finished 13th in the standings with a best result of fifth at Spa.

Earlier this month he took part in the GP3 test in Abu Dhabi, driving for Jenzer Motorsport on the first two days and Campos Racing on the third.

Ptak is the fourth driver announced for the Giles team for the 2016 TRS, following Austrian Formula Renault 2.0 racer Ferdinand Habsburg, Pro Mazda driver Will Owen and local ace James Munro.

The five-round series begins on 16-17 January at Ruapuna.
