GT racer Hunter Abbott will drive Rob Austin Racing's second Audi A4 in the British Touring Car Championship this season.
The 33-year-old has signed to race alongside team owner Rob Austin, who took his first win in the series last season at Rockingham.
"Watching the BTCC in the 1990s is what made me want to race in the first place," said Abbott.
"Racing in the BTCC is the realisation of part of a childhood dream and finally I've got the opportunity to do it - and with a team that's clearly on the up.
"The deal has come together quite late but I got my first run in the Audi [last week] and I'm pleased with how it went."
Austin, who shared a car with Abbott in British GT in 2008, added: "I'm very excited about having Hunter in the team. He's driven for me in the past and he's always been rapid.
"All the team are immediately very impressed with his approach and we're looking forward to the season together."
