Toro Rosso has confirmed reports that its 2009 car, the STR4, will be given its track debut at the Adria circuit in northern Italy next week.

We reported this week that the event - an initial 'shakedown' prior to the new Red Bull Technology-designed single seater's full debut at the forthcoming group test - is scheduled for next Wednesday.

The Faenza based team duly confirmed the news, but pointed out that the media should not arrange to attend the Adria circuit because the shakedown is to be conducted behind closed doors.

"Just to make it clear, if and when we do go to Adria, it will be a private test behind closed doors and nobody is allowed in," the team said in one of its tongue-in-cheek media communiques.
