WTCC Yokahama Trophy winner James Nash will be competing in the Blancpain GT Championship this season.

The 28-year-old from Newport Pagnell posted a series of teaser videos on YouTube last week, hinting at his plans for the 2014 campaign, before finally revealing he would be racing for Belgian outfit W Racing Team in an Audi R8 LMS Ultra.

The Blancpain GT series also incorporates the infamous 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, where Nash will race for the first time.

Nash will partner German duo Christopher Mies and Frank Stippler for the endurance series season and at Spa for the 24 hour race.
