The Spanish team, which leads the International GT Open series with a McLaren 650S GT3 for Alvaro Parente and Miguel Ramos, has acquired the cars that took Kevin Magnussen and Carlos Sainz Jr to back-to-back titles in 2013-14.

Team owner Teo Martin said: "I am very happy to acquire the DAMS team from the World Series, as it has a very important racing record.

"Also we are very happy to have a team from Madrid fighting for European motorsport championships."

Jaime Alguersuari Sr, boss of series promoter RPM Racing, added: "It is a pleasure to have the Teo Martin team in our championship.

"Its long racing history and the success over the years are the best introduction letter for a team that won't take a long time to adapt to this news category.

"I share many values with Teo Martin, an excellent sportsman, automotive projects manager and, above all, a huge motorsport fan."

DAMS decided to call time on its 2012-15 stint in FR3.5 to start up a GP3 team, following Renault's decision to stop backing the 3.5-litre championship.

Formula 3.5 V8 is set to start a tie-up with International GT Open next year, with the championships sharing the bill at five events on the provisional 2016 calendar.
