Teenager Aiden Moffat will drive a Team Hard Volkswagen Passat for the final two rounds of the British Touring Car Championship.
Moffat, 16, became the youngest driver in BTCC history when he made his debut at Knockhill in an S2000 Chevrolet Cruze run by Finesse Motorsport.
He has now switched to Tony Gilham's team, which has previously fielded both Tom Onslow-Cole and Andy Willmot in the NGTC Passat this year.
Gilham said: "Aiden is a real star of the future in the BTCC. We've been talking to him for a while and we're delighted to be able to give him this opportunity for the rest of the season.
"He showed good promise at Knockhill but unfortunately the reliability wasn't there in his car. We hope to change all that by providing a reliable and quick car for him show his potential.
"There's no pressure on him but we're excited to see how he gets on before hopefully building a long-term relationship."
