Yelmer Buurman will return to Superleague Formula this year with the Netherlands-PSV Eindhoven team.
The 24-year-old Dutchman has six race wins to his name in Superleague and took PSV to second place in the overall standings in 2008. He is the fifth driver to confirm his participation in the championship.
"It's good to be back in Superleague Formula for 2011, especially as we have a great calendar for this year," said Buurman, who completed a number of demonstration laps at Zolder following his announcement.
"The V12 engines make for some spectacular racing and it will be good getting back in the car.
"The Superleague Formula car is thrilling to race in and as we have seen last year the championship is very competitive."
Fellow Dutchman Robert Doornbos will also remain in the championship this year, having signed to drive second Netherlands car, which will be run by the Atech Reid team.
