Argenis Riera, Eric Stranne and Dino Paolini to take the wheel at the Interlagos event as the curtains fall on a successful season for the team.
With the Superleague having one last bit of action before the winter break in the shape of the Young Driver Test, Nordsjoen Racing sought to reward some young drivers for their performances in the feeder series.

Argenis Riera enjoyed Superleague machinery twice in the 2016 season, coming in as a reserve for Wauters in Abu Dhabi and for Nijo in Austin. The Venezuelan scored in both occasion, an 11th place in Texas his highlight; but it was his Supercup performances in the latter part of the season that caught the eye of the Nordsjoen management, with second places in Abu Dhabi and Interlagos.

Touring ace Eric Stranne need little introduction: the 2015 Formula Challenge champion endured a hard season in Supercup, a lone victory in Canada the high before pulling out of the series, but with a Master Series and two ITC titles under his belt, the credentials of the quick Swede are bright.

German Dino Paolini is the latest arrival to the league among the trio, but in his short time in GPVWC he has already established himself as one of the stars of the future. In a hugely competitive Supercup field, the youngster claimed one victory, eight podium finishes and only ended up outside of the points in R1 of the inaugural Australian Grand Prix. The Young Driver Test will be his first taste of Superleague.

The YDT takes place on Thursday, 24th November.
