Karun Chandhok will enjoy his fourth attempt at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June after signing for European Le Mans Series team Tockwith Motorsports in the LMP2 class.

Chandhok, 33, made his Le Mans debut back in 2012, becoming the first Indian driver to compete in the famed endurance race at the Circuit de la Sarthe.

The ex-Hispania and Lotus Formula 1 driver recorded a best class finish of fifth with Murphy Prototypes in 2015.

Chandhok also raced with the Irish team in ELMS at the Red Bull Ring last year in his only racing appearance of 2016, with his attention being on his F1 punditry duties on Channel 4.

Chandhok will now return to Le Mans in 2017 with Tockwith Motorsports, which will debut the Ligier-Gibson car in the FIA World Endurance Championship at the 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps on May 6.

Chandhok will also appear at Spa alongside Nigel Moore and Phil Hanson.
