Jenson Button will make his Super GT debut at August's Suzuka 1000km showpiece event.
Button announced his retirement from from F1 last year.
“After driving an NSX CONCEPT-GT at Honda Racing Thanks Day last December, I became interested in racing in Super GT. I spoke with Honda and they have given me the chance to race at the Suzuka 1000km,” said Button.
“As an F1 driver and a member of Team Mugen, I will push to win. I am very much looking forward to racing in front of my Japanese fans again.”
Button is expected to drive the Honda during a tyre test from June 6-7 ahead of the Suzuka 1000km on August 27.
