Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 champion Pierre Gasly will do a day of testing in the GP3 post-season test with teams’ champions ART Grand Prix.

Gasly, 17, has made his single-seater debut in 2011, taking third in his rookie year in French F4. In 2012, he moved to the Eurocup with R-Ace GP (now known as the ART Junior Team) and took tenth in the standings.

Having won the Eurocup title with Tech 1 in 2013, he is looking to move up to Formula Renault 3.5 next year. As such, Pierre will only do the first day of the test.
