Green, whose confirmation in Audi's 2019 factory DTM line-up was announced earlier in December will drive in the one-day test that follows the Marrakech E-Prix.

"It's official!" Green wrote on Twitter. "I'm back in a single seater after a very long wait. I'll drive for Audi in the 2019 FIA Formula E test in Marrakech! Save the date: January 13th"

Green's running for Audi is expected to take place alongside the team's regular test and reserve driver Nico Muller, who also drove in the test that followed the Ad Diriyah season opener earlier this month.

Audi had a single entry for that test as did it not run a female driver in its second car.

Green's Marrakech outing will be the first time he has driven a single-seater since December 2004, when he tested a McLaren Formula 1 car alongside Lewis Hamilton and future IndyCar driver Alex Lloyd after winning the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award two years earlier.

That appearance followed his last championship triumph, the 2004 Formula 3 Euro Series, which he won by 52 points after finishing ahead of future F1 world champions Nico Rosberg and Hamilton.
