Johnny Herbert will contest three Superstars rounds this year, the championship has announced.
The three-time grand prix winner raced in the saloon series in 2011, taking sixth in the standings, and had been expected to return for this year's Donington Park event on 19-20 May. In addition to this event, Herbert will make further appearances at two subsequent rounds, driving a Maserati.
"Racing in the Superstars Series last year was great and this year even more so because I will drive the Maserati I battled against so much," said the Briton.
"It's the same car [Mika] Salo and [Christian] Fittipaldi are driving in their Superstars appearances so a bit of rivalry has developed between us when it comes to the results we can get. This rivalry is giving an extra element of competition to the racing."
Salo finished sixth at the Monza season-opener, while Fittipaldi was in the top five in both his races at Imola.
