Martin Tomczyk will make his Race of Champions debut in Dusseldorf this year.
The new DTM champion is the ninth driver to confirm his participation in the December 4 event at the German city's ESPRIT Arena.
"Only the world's best racing drivers are invited to contest the Race of Champions," said Tomczyk. "So the fact that I have qualified to join this illustrious circle as DTM champion makes me rather proud.
"The permanent switching from one vehicle to another looks like one of the biggest challenges at the Race of Champions. I'm really curious to find out how it will feel to race rally cars, open buggies and anything else that has got four wheels and is fun to drive."
Tomczyk will not compete in the RoC Nations' Cup on December 3, Team Germany consisting instead of Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher.
