Former GP2 driver Simon Trummer is to make a comeback to the Series this weekend when he subs for Johnny Cecotto at Hilmer Motorsport.
Trummer is fresh off the back of racing at Le Mans just last weekend and has been racing full-time in the FIA World Endurance Championship this season.
The Swiss driver’s GP2 exploits began in 2012 when he graduated from GP3 with Arden and scored points in his second weekend. Trummer spent two more years in the Series with Rapax and scored his one and only podium in the Series in Bahrain at the start of the 2014 season.
“I am very happy to be back in a GP2 car, and especially to be part of Franz Hilmer’s team.” he said.
“I have great respect for Franz and for what he has achieved so far and I would like to thank Franz for this opportunity.
“I know the track in Austria but I have no experience with the new DRS on the GP2 car. But I am sure that I will adapt and be up to speed quickly. I can’t wait to race again on Saturday.”
