In 2013 the British driver claimed the FIA World Endurance Championship title in the LMP2 class with Nissan for the Oak Racing Morgan team. Experienced with the NISMO touring car, Plowman is excited for the season ahead.

"I already know what NISMO can do. It was their engine that powered me to World Championship success so I am expecting great things from the new Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3," Plowman said. "The car looks great, feels great and I am super happy with the programme that MRS and JRM Group have put together."

Plowman and the MRS GT-Racing team are scheduled to contest the full BES campaign, which begins at Monza on the 11-12 April.

"Looking at the entry list it is going to be a tough year, but I'm sure the others are looking too and my guess is that we're on their 'hard-to-beat' list. My time in the World Endurance Series showed me that the discipline of a multi-driver squad and longer races suits me very well.

"The Blancpain Series takes us to some fantastic circuits, with big grids and 20+ cars in the Pro class alone. These are races that any team, and any driver would be proud to win, in particular the blue riband event, the Spa 24 Hours. A race I would love to add on my CV alongside the Le Mans win."
