Italian racer Luca Ghiotto will be driving for Trident in the 2016 GP2 Series. The Vicenza-based driver is moving up from the GP3 Series after ending the 2015 season as runner up for the Italian squad.

"I am delighted to announce that, after a spectacular season that handed him the runner-up honours in the 2015 GP3 Series, young racer Luca Ghiotto will be stepping up to the GP2 Series with Trident. The move also provides continuity to the valuable collaboration between Trident and ACI Sport, in a relationship aimed at supporting and promoting the careers of young and talented racers. The completion of the agreement with Ghiotto was favoured and made possible by his participation to the Team Italia program", said Team Principal Maurizio Salvadori.

Speaking at the ACI Sport 2015 Italian Championships awards ceremony, Luca Ghiotto said: "I can't wait to line-up for this new adventure. Last year, it was tough for me to fight so hard and not winning the title. However, it has been an extremely useful experience with the help of the excellent teamwork among the whole Trident stable. I want to thank once again Maurizio Salvadori and Giacomo Ricci for their support, and the Italian Federation for believing so much in me. I really look forward to be back on-track."
