Salvatore De Plano is to make his Auto GP debut with the Euronova Racing squad at the upcoming round in Imola.

The 39-year-old will take to the series with the Italian squad, despite having a relative small amount of single-seater racing experience since the late-90s.

De Plano, who will race alongside points leader Kimiya Sato and Shinya Michimi, tested for Euronova at the Ricardo Tormo in Valencia following a private session at Adria in April. De Plano having agreed an initial plan to race with Vincenzo Sospiri’s team.

In order to get De Plano up to speed, Euronova will run him at the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC round at the Hockenheimring this weekend.
The Tuscany native does have something of an ongoing relationship with Euronova, having previously acted as their official test driver, following his brief foray into Italian F3000 in 2004.

More recently, De Plano has been competing in the Italian F2 Trophy Cup and was, for a time, the Sporting Director of the Porsche Superstar squad, Petricorse. The veteran also has experience in the defunct Formula Europa Boxer Series, as well as Formula 2000 and Italian F3.
