Former Formula 1 driver Max Chilton has agreed to drive for Nissan at this year's Le Mans.
The 23-year-old spent the last two years racing for Marussia, but his career stalled in October when the team went out of business.
However, the Brit has now decided to switch to sportscar racing for the entire World Endurance Championship, where he will drive the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO.
"I'm honoured to have been asked to join a manufacturer as prestigious as Nissan in a championship that is growing year on year," said Chilton.
"Le Mans has always had an amazing following and to be racing there as a works driver is a dream come true. My aim has always been to race at the highest level and the technology that has gone into the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO is as impressive as a Formula 1 car.
"Having met with the team and seen first hand the dedication and desire to win that exists within this project I can't wait to get on track."
This year's WEC will get underway at Silverstone on April 12.
