Jos Verstappen agreed to take part in the Rotterdam motorsport demonstration this year. The 41-year-old ex-driver for Stewart, Arrows, Benetton, Simtek, Footwork, Tyrrell, and Minardi will work with Dutch team Manor MP Motorsport to join in the prestigious VKV City Racing event on August 18. They will do runs in one of the team’s Auto GP cars.

Verstappen is still the most victorious Dutch driver to date to have contended in the top level. He also took part in the Le Mans 24 Hours and A1 Grand Prix series.

“I am really looking forward to being part of such a fantastic event,” he commented, “The City Racing festival has really grown in Rotterdam over the last few years and it's a great chance for the Dutch fans to see some amazing racing cars up close. It's going to be great joining up with the guys at Manor MP Motorsport too and a lot of fun showing what the Auto GP car can do.”
