McLaren Formula 1 driver Jenson Button will try out the passenger version of Mercedes' latest DTM car when the series visits Brands Hatch this weekend.
Button will receive instruction from Mercedes' DTM driver and McLaren F1 reserve Gary Paffett before giving his compatriot a passenger ride around the Kent circuit.
Button will also sign autographs for fans outside the Mercedes-Benz hospitality unit at 11.10 on Sunday, before joining a live Q&A session chaired by DTM regular and BBC F1 pundit David Coulthard.
"Brands Hatch is one of the circuits where I cut my teeth in junior single-seaters and I have many fond memories of the place - in Formula Ford, the Formula Ford Festival, and in British Formula 3. It's one of the greatest tracks in the world, and a place with an awful lot of motorsport history," said Button.
"Gary's also given me the chance to drive the DTM 'race taxi' with him - it'll be the first time I've driven Brands since doing F3 there back in 1999. It's going to be very cool.
"I think the DTM weekend will be a great event - it's a fantastic series with some excellent, close racing and some of the best drivers in the world. For me, it's going to be a great personal experience and a fantastic opportunity to get up-close and personal with all the British fans who have been supporting me over the years."
Paffett currently leads the DTM standings after two rounds, having taken victory in the Hockenheim season-opener and second place behind BMW's Bruno Spengler at Lausitz.
