British F1 legend Hill back on track with his Rat Pack pals at Brands Hatch
21:00 GMT, 8 May 2012
Back in the driving seat: Damon Hill
Damon Hill will return to racing for the first time since his final grand prix in 1999 as a guest driver in the British round of the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup at Brands Hatch next week.
The 1996 Formula One world champion will take part in the support event to the German Touring Car championship race which features David Coulthard and Ralf Schumacher.
Also joining Hill will be former rivals from his junior racing days, Mark Blundell, Perry McCarthy, Martin Donnelly and Julian Bailey.
'Perry, Julian and I are coming out of retirement for this race, so we are sure to be pretty rusty,' said Hill.
The drivers, who were dubbed 'The Rat Pack' in their younger days, have remained close friends and are racing to raise money for Hill's charity HALOW which helps to support young people with learning disabilities.
