Lewis Hamilton will make an appearance at the DTM round at Brands Hatch next month.
The reigning world champion, who scored his first win of the season in Hungary three weeks ago, will be present with Mercedes-Benz and will hold an interview session in the paddock as well as taking part in a circuit parade in a Mercedes road car.
"It's great to be going back to the DTM at Brands Hatch again," said Hamilton. "It is always fantastic to have the opportunity to spend time with British motorsport fans and thank them for their support.
"I raced in the support series for DTM, the Formula 3 Euro Series, for two seasons so had the opportunity to watch most of the races at that time.
"The DTM always sees lots of drama and overtaking, and I would definitely recommend it as a good family day out."
Hamilton's first guest appearance at Brands Hatch's DTM round last year resulted in a significant increase in the attendance over the first two years of the event at the circuit.
