German driver Jens Höing will compete in the 2009 FIA Formula Two Championship following the resolution of contractual issues.
Along with the rest of the F2 line-up, Höing will take part in the final pre-season group test at Silverstone on Monday (18 May).
21 year-old Höing competed in the German Formula 3 Cup last season. He also tested a Superleague Formula car at Vallelunga in August 2008, where he set the sixth quickest time overall. Prior to F3, Höing spent three seasons racing in Germany’s national Formula BMW Championship. He contested the 2006 Formula BMW World Final against fellow F2 drivers Rob Wickens, Jack Clarke and Tobias Hegewald at the Circuit de Valencia – the venue which will host the opening rounds of the Formula Two season in just over two weeks time.
Höing has already confirmed that his participation in Formula Two is likely to be a two year programme: "This is my best chance to reach the top of professional motorsport," he said. "My aim is to score podiums this year before challenging for the title next season. I want to win the F2 championship in 2010. I am extremely grateful to my sponsor and my new management team who have made this drive in F2 possible."
