IRL IndyCar Series frontrunner and double Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves will take part in American TV programme 'Dancing with the Stars' next month.
The programme pairs celebrities with a professional dancer, and the pairs then compete to stay in the competition each week.
"I'm really excited for this opportunity," Castroneves said. "It's definitely something that I never would have imagined participating in.
"However, now that I know that I'm going to be part of the competition, I've set my sights on winning."
The programme begins on September 24, two weeks after the IndyCar Series season finishes. However, Castroneves has already started rehearsing for the show.
"After three days of rehearsing, I can tell that I need a lot of practice," he added. "I'm discovering muscles that I didn't know I had."
