Italian drivers Kevin Giovesi and Loris Spinelli will make up Puma 3 M-Sport’s lineup for the 2014 Auto GP season.

20-year-old Giovesi contested a part-time campaign with Ghinzani Motorsport in Auto GP last year and managed to pick up sixth in the overall standings. He took on-the-road victories on two separate occasions, only to lose them due to post-race penalties, and picked up an additional five podium finishes.

Prior to that, he won the Swiss Formula Lista Junior championship, the Copa Class title in F3 Open and two races in Italian Formula Three.

18-year-old Spinelli previously amassed a world-class CV in karting, which included titles in the 2010 Trofeo Andrea Margutti KF3 and the 2011 CIK-FIA KF2 World Cup.

He took a maiden podium in cars in the Formula Abarth season opener last year, but did not race in the series past round one.

Spanish squad Puma 3 M-Sport are newcomers to the Auto GP grid. The 2014 season of the series will commence at Marrakech on April 12-13.
