Portuguese driver Miguel Ramos has joined the Aston Martin LMP1 line-up for this year's Le Mans Series and Le Mans 24 Hours.
The 37-year-old will make his prototype debut with Aston's new programme, having spent recent seasons racing a Vitaphone Maserati in the FIA GT Championship. He also drove an Aston GT1 car for BMS Scuderia Italia in the 2006 series.
"I am pleased to be joining Aston Martin Racing," said Ramos. "I'm sure that the new car will be competitive and I am looking forward to the challenge of moving from GT1 to LMP1."
Aston Martin Racing team boss George Howard-Chappell added: "We are delighted to have Miguel with us this year and look forward to integrating him into the team.
Ramos completes the driver roster for Aston's two-car LMS entry, joining Jan Charouz, Tomas Enge, Stefan Mucke, Harold Primat and Darren Turner.
