Ex-Simtek Formula 1 driver Mimmo Schiattarella back to Superstars

Francesco Sini, Solaris Chevrolet, Slovakia Superstars 2013Ex-Formula 1 driver Domenico Schiattarella will return to the Superstars Series at Zolder this weekend after a three-year lay-off.

The 45-year-old Italian will drive a Chevrolet Lumina for the Solaris Motorsport squad.

In addition to returnee Schiattarella, three drivers will make their Superstars debuts in Belgium.

FIA GT Series leader Laurens Vanthoor will drive a second Audi Sport Italia RS5 alongside team regular Gianni Morbidelli, making this weekend the first time the squad has run two cars since Johan Kristoffersson secured last year's title.

Renaud Kuppens, an experienced Belgian GT driver, will race a Scuderia Giudici BMW M3 while Marco Cassara will drive a second Mercedes C63 AMG for the Roma Racing Team.

Another ex-F1 driver, Nicola Larini, confirmed last week that he would drive the second Petri Corse Porsche Panamera alongside his former Alfa Romeo touring car team-mate Fabrizio Giovanardi.


Schiattarella's F1 career amounted to nine grands prix from 1994-95, all with the Simtek team.

Mimmo Schiattarella, Simtek, Monaco GP 1995His debut came at the '94 European Grand Prix at Jerez, a race at which the Italian Formula 3 race-winner qualified 26th and finished 19th.

He handed his Simtek-Ford S941 over to Taki Inoue for the following race at Suzuka, but reclaimed the seat for the Adelaide season finale.

Schiattarella claimed a career-best ninth place at the Argentinian GP in '95, a race in which team-mate Jos Verstappen had been running in the points before his retirement.
