| | Karun Chandhok in the World Endurance Championship
Karun Chandhok will join the newly-launched series, which includes the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Sebring 12 Hours.
He will join JRM Racing for the new World Endurance Championship this year.
Doing races which are six, 12 and even 24 hours are going to be a new challenge," added Chandhok. "Together with the works Audi and Peugeot the Acura LMP1 car that the JRM Racing Team have acquired should be one of the most competitive cars.
"At the end of 2011, we explored the options to race in F1 and when it didn't look like a possibility, I decided to look outside and the WEC presents the next best option,added Chandhok.
