British fans can catch the action on British Eurosport at 9am on Saturday (feature race live) and 10-11am on Sunday (presumably a re-run of the sprint race, possibly with highlights of the feature).

Here’s a run-down of the confirmed teams and drivers so far:

Trust Team Arden – Mika Maki, Luiz Razia
My Team Qi-Meritus.Mahara – Alex Yoong*, Giacomo Ricci
