Kimi Raikkonen got his first taste of a NASCAR Next Gen car at Virginia International Raceway today, ahead of his Cup Series debut at Watkins Glen next weekend.

News of the 2007 Formula 1 World Champion’s return to racing broke three months ago, with announcements that Kimi will drive for Trackhouse Racing in the road course race at Watkins Glen on 21 August, driving a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 alongside team-mates Daniel Suarez and Ross Chastain.

It will mark his first outing in a motorsport event since he called time on his 20-year F1 career last December with his final appearance for Alfa Romeo at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
