Herbert joins Maserati

Johnny Herbert is to race the new Maserati GT car this year and was out testing with the car this week at Mugello in Italy, alongside Fabrizio De Simone, Mika Salo and Andrea Bertolini. The quartet will debut the MC12 GT car in a race on September 5 with the intention being to run a full programme of FIA GT races in 2005. It is no clear whether Herbert will have a longer term deal and the ex-F1 man is due to take part in some more ALMS races with Audi in the months ahead.
