Jack Goff will switch from the factory MG team to race a WSR BMW 125i M Sport in the 2016 British Touring Car Championship.
Goff has spent three seasons in the BTCC, each in a front-wheel-drive car, but believes he will have no trouble adapting to WSR's rear-wheel-drive machine.
He was part of the factory MG team last season, and took the MG6 to his career-first victory at Snetterton in August.
Goff will drive the IHG-backed machine used in 2015 by Andy Priaulx.
"I have plenty of data to study and I will have quite a lot of test days before the season, which is something I haven't had before," said the 24-year-old.
"I have the onboard videos to look at from last year too - but a car is just a car. I should fit in fine."
Goff said the opportunity to link up with WSR and BMW was unmissable.
"BMW is a great brand and WSR is a fantastic team. The deal came together quite quickly and I jumped at it.
"The combination is so tempting, and it is a chance to race at the front of the grid."
Goff is likely to join WSR's 2015 drivers Rob Collard and Sam Tordoff in the team.
WSR boss Dick Bennetts said: "We are very excited with IHG Rewards Club's decision to take Jack onboard, as we have watched him develop into a top BTCC driver in the last couple of years.
"The 2016 Dunlop MSA BTCC championship is shaping up to be another great season, so with Jack joining WSR it will further strengthen our already strong line-up in our BMW 125i M Sports, which are currently undergoing an extensive development programme."
