DTM drivers Lucas Auer and Daniel Juncadella, sportscar aces Pipo Derani and Filipe Albuquerque and Carlin IndyCar signing Sergio Sette Camara were among the latest batch of drivers confirmed for the post-race test on March 1.

Auer, who returns to the DTM this year BMW after a year away in Super Formula, was chosen to represent the German marque in Marrakesh alongside Kyle Kirkwood, last year's Indy Pro 2000 champion who steps up to Indy Lights this year with Andretti Autosport.

Juncadella will represent rival brand Mercedes along with Jake Hughes, who drives for Mercedes partner team HWA in FIA F3.

Meanwhile, Derani will drive for Mahindra and his Action Express Racing IMSA teammate Albuquerque will appear for DS Techeetah, both drivers joining their team's existing development drivers, Sam Dejonghe and James Rossiter respectively.
