Di Resta has drawn interest from the Formula E team, which will give the Scot a run in its car on January 14 in Marrakesh. The drive comes after the all-electric series’ second event next week.
Di Resta stood in for Felipe Massa at Williams in the Hungarian Grand Prix last summer, but it looks likely the team will choose between Russian Sergey Sirotkin and Polish driver Robert Kubica to take up the vacant seat for 2018.
Formula V8 3.5 winner Pietro Fittipaldi will also be on hand to test the Jaguar team’s electric charger.
“I am really looking forward to my first taste of Formula E and the Jaguar I-type 2,” said the Scot who will head to Morocco after completing this weekend’s test at Daytona with United Autosport, a prelude to the Rolex 24 in which di Resta will race at the end of the month.
“It is a perfect opportunity, at the right time of year to have a go. It will be an intensive day of testing in Marrakesh but I’m sure I can give some positive feedback to the team,” he added.
