After being dropped from McClaren's Formula 1 team, Kevin Magnussen has been signed on as a test driver for Porsche in Barcelona next month.
Danish driver Kevin Magnussen may have found a new home with Porsche. The 23-year-old Dane has been given a try-out at the LMP1 Porsche World Endurance Championship, November 10th and 11th in Barcelona. 
 
Magnussen is among the three new drivers that will try the Porsche 919 Hybrid car, joining Mitch Evans and Oliver Turvey. 
 
The trial could possibly earn him a place on Porsche's team at Le Mans, a competition where his father is involved with Corvette's team. 
 
"Porsche has offered me this test because they possibly have an available seat in their third car at Le Mans next year. There are no guarantees but they are now looking at us drivers to be sure that they have the best, should they need one," Magnussen told Jyllands-Posten.
 
 
The Dane is currently looking for a new racing home after being dropped by his former team, McLaren-Honda.
