Vitantonio Liuzzi is among a number of big-name drivers who will race in the International Superstars Series this season.

The Italian, who raced in Formula 1 until the end of last year, will race a Mercedes C63 AMG for CAAL Racing, and tested the car for the first time at Monza yesterday. His participation was confirmed at the official series press conference in Milan today.

It was also announced that former F1 drivers Christian Fittipaldi and Mika Salo will share a Swiss Team Maserati Quattroporte, the car that won the title in the hands of Andrea Bertolini last season. The series also expects Johnny Herbert and Ananda Mikola to be on the grid, in addition to the likes of Gianni Morbidelli and Thomas Biagi.

“I’m persuaded that Superstars is a great choice to open yourself to other categories than F1,” said Liuzzi, “and it really fits for me, considering my adaptable nature. Superstars is a really important championship that lines-up great drivers and teams. I’m sure that this season will be extremely spectacular.”

The season begins at Monza on the weekend of the 31 March-1 April.
