American Top Gear presenter Tanner Foust has announced he will take part in at least four rounds of the 2015 World Rallycross championship with the Marklund Motorsport team.

The 41-year-old is a stunt driver veteran and has worked on a number of Hollywood blockbusters such as The Dukes of Hazzard (2005), Fast and Furious and Iron Man 2 alongside hosting the US version of Top Gear since 2010.

Foust finished 13th in the drivers' standings last season after racing in selected rounds and is gearing up for a return in 2015 with Marklund Motorsport in the Volkswagen Polo RX.

"I'm looking forward to being able to return to the FIA World Rallycross Championship for a select season of events this year," Foust said. "The tracks in the series are incredible and I'm especially looking forward to the Lydden Hill event - there is something special about racing at the home of rallycross."

Foust announced he will race at the Canadian, French, Spanish and British rounds of the 2015 series.
