Virgin Racing has announced Alvaro Parente and Luiz Razia will be its test drivers in its debut season in 2010.

The 25-year-old Portuguese joins racing drivers Timo Glock and Lucas di Grassi at the team, which was officially unveiled as Virgin Racing on Tuesday.

Parente raced in the GP2 Series in 2009, finishing in eighth position after winning the Spa round.

"I'm going to do my best to do a good job. It's great to be with this team and there's going to be a lot of success."

Brazilian Razia, 20, also raced in GP2 in 2009.

"It's so exciting, it's a dream to be a part of a new team," he said.
