James Rossiter will make his Le Mans 24 Hours debut alongside Johnny Mowlem this year, the duo driving one of the Jet Alliance factory Lotus Evora GTEs.
Mowlem and Rossiter will also take part in the full Intercontinental Le Mans Cup this season.
Rossiter is Lotus's test and development driver and has been testing the Evora extensively during the past months.
"I am delighted to make my Le Mans debut with such an amazing brand as Lotus, and I look forward to working with Johnny and getting to grips with a race circuit that I have always wanted to drive," said Rossiter.
Mowlem, who has signed an extension of his factory contract with Lotus that takes him through into 2012, added: "It is always a real pleasure to drive at Le Mans and I have been fortunate enough to do the race seven times before, but to drive for a car manufacturer with the racing heritage that Lotus has, will make this race a very special one for me."
