Great Britain’s A1 Grand Prix team have confirmed their driver line-up for the coming season, with youngster Oliver Jarvis coming into the fold.

Robbie Kerr, who raced for the majority of last season, will stay on while Darren Manning will get a chance to add to his one outing last term.

They will be joined by 22-year-old Jarvis, who won the Formula Renault series last season.

Team principal John Surtees said: “Quite simply I think we have one of the strongest driver representations in A1GP.

“Obviously Robbie and Darren were with us last year and did a solid job scoring podiums and helping us to third overall in the nations standings. Oliver joins us as a rookie but with impeccable credentials.

“First and foremost the team has to win this season so we’ll look at the drivers for each race and decide who gives us the best chance of helping us to achieve that goal.”
