Johnny Herbert is going to take part in three Superstars International races this season, starting at Donington Park, driving a Maserati Quattroporte.
“Racing in the Superstars Series last year was great and this year even more so because I will drive the Maserati I battled against so much,” said Herbert.
The former Formula 1 drivers is going to drive the Swiss Racing prepared Maserati Quattroporte alongside Mika Salo and Christian Fittipaldi.
“It’s the same car Salo and Fittipaldi are driving in their Superstars appearances so a bit of rivalry has developed between us when it comes to the results we can get. This rivalry is giving an extra element of competition to the racing,” said Herbert.
The Brit took part in the Superstars series last year, with 2nd and 6th in the races at Donington Park.
“It’s hard for me to judge where I stand as this year I’ll be in a new car with new Hankook tyres and facing some new competitors, like the young Kristoffersson in his RS5, Liuzzi in the 2012 version of the AMG C63 I drove last year and a reborn Pigoli who at Monza showed everyone what the jaguar is capable of. I can’t wait to see all the UK fans at Donington and I hope to root for me,” said Herbert.
The other two races for Herbert in the Superstars International series has not yet been revealed.
