A1 Team Great Britain has confirmed that Oliver Jarvis will return to the cockpit for the next round of the A1GP season in Durban.

Jarvis will be making his race debut at the South African venue, with Robbie Kerr having taken on driving duties in both 2006 and 2007.

Team GBR is currently sixth in the title race with 58 points and will look to close in on the teams ahead at a circuit known for its high attrition rate with Jarvis admitting he was looking forward to be being back behind the wheel.

"I'm delighted to be back in the British car and I'm especially looking forward to the Durban event," he said. "I had the opportunity to do the rookie session in Durban last year and it's a fantastic street track in a beautiful setting, so I'm really looking forward to racing there this year. Hopefully we can continue on from Robbie's podium in Australia and get more podium finishes in order to keep Britain in the championship fight."

Team principal Katie Clements admitted that the podium in Australia had left the team confident going into the event next weekend.

"Following Robbie's podium in Australia and our previous results in Durban, we are very confident ahead of next weekend and looking forward to scoring some good points," she said. "Our aim is to finish on the podium and move closer to the teams ahead of us in the championship. We are happy to welcome back Oliver and are sure he is ready for the challenges of the tricky nature of this event."
