Oliver Rowland, Renault Sport Formula One Team Development Driver, will take a step closer to fulfilling a lifetime ambition, when he will drive the team’s 2012 V8-powered-car, the E20, at Gamma Racing Day in Assen on 5 August.

Rowland will take to the track on the Saturday with Renault Sport Formula One Team driver Nico Hülkenberg on driving duties the following day. The event, held in the Netherlands, is expected to see crowds of around 100,000 motorsport fans.

DAMS Formula 2 driver Rowland said: "It’s a really exciting time for me to drive Renault’s F1 car in front of 100,000 people in Holland. I see this as a step in the right direction to achieving my dream of driving in Formula 1.”
