Star Mazda champion Adam Christodoulou and International Formula Masters Rookie of the Year Alexander Rossi will test a car prepared by Sam Schmidt Motorsports' Firestone Indy Lights team tomorrow as part of the "Champions Test" program. The pair will drive on the Putnum Park road course near Indianapolis. The test day is awarded in recognition of the drivers' successful season in their respective series.
Christodoulou, who claimed the Star Mazda title with his win at Laguna Seca on Oct. 10, will drive a Firestone Indy Lights car for the second time in a month. The 20-year-old driver from Litchfield, England tested a car for Bryan Herta Autosport last month and is scheduled to test with Sam Schmidt Motorsports on the oval at Kentucky Speedway on Oct. 22.
Rossi, who won the Formula BMW Americas title and the BMW World Final in 2008, will drive a Firestone Indy Lights car for the first time after finishing as the top rookie in Europe's International Formula Master series. The 18-year-old American claimed three wins and five podium finishes this season.
