Loris Capirossi will be swap from two to four wheels when he takes part in the Suzuki Tempest Rally on the Hampshire/Surrey borders next month.
The Italian MotoGP rider will be driving a Suzuki Swift "Sport Cup" car, joining the regular competitors for the final round of the one-make rally series.
The rally includes 80km of gravel stages in the forests and Military training grounds around Aldershot.
"I am really looking forward to this as I have almost as much passion for cars as I do bikes," said the Rizla Suzuki rider.
"It is a big honour to be invited by Suzuki to take part in this rally and I will certainly try to be competitive, I know it will be tough racing against guys who do this type of motorsport every weekend, but I'm sure we'll have some fun!"
Rizla Suzuki team manager Pail Denning will also take part in the rally, competing against Capirossi in equal machinery.
