Sabine Schmitz will make her second appearance in the World Touring Car Championship at the Nordschleife later this month with Munnich Motorsport
Schmitz, part of the BBC's Top Gear presenting team, took part in the championship's races at the Nordschleife with Munnich last year.
In the first world championship races to take place at the circuit in three decades, Schmitz scored a point on her debut in a Chevrolet Cruze.
She will deputise for team owner and driver Rene Munnich at the Nordschleife in a similar deal, owing to Munnich's clashing World Rallycross commitments, and will also compete in the Nurburgring 24 Hours taking place alongside the WTCC rounds on the final weekend of this month.
Schmitz will also undertake filming for Top Gear during the weekend - missing the WTCC test and first practice sessions as a result.
"I enjoyed it very much to compete against world champion touring car drivers on the best race circuit in the world," she said.
"Because of my Top Gear commitments I haven't got the time to do the official test and Free Practice 1 on Thursday, which is a bit of a disaster because I need lots of practice in the Chevrolet as it's so different to what I'm usually driving."
Munnich Motorsport team manager Dominik Greiner added: "For her first time in the car last year Sabine did a good job.
"She will start nearly from zero [again] because it's been nearly a year since she last drove the Chevrolet and it's totally different for her.
"If she can score points again then that will be fantastic."
