Norbert Vettel, the father of two-time world champion Sebastian, will join the Volkswagen Scirocco R-Cup for the season finale at Hockenheim this weekend.
Vettel will be competing in the Legends category alongside Le Mans winners Frank Biela and Emanuele Pirro, FIA GT1 champion Markus Winkelhock and former Formula 1 driver Christian Danner.
They will compete using the 285HP Cup Scirocco cars powered by bio natural gas.
Vettel Sr, who competed in hill-climb races for 12 years, will be the second father of a Formula 1 world champion to take part in the Scirocco Cup. Anthony Hamilton, Lewis's father, had driven a practice session at Brands Hatch.
The Sciroccos are part of the DTM support bill, where Sebastian Vettel last raced in the F3 Euro Series in 2006.
