Dusan Borkovic will switch to the Proteam Honda outfit for his second season in the World Touring Car Championship, it has been confirmed.

The Serbian drove a Campos Racing-prepared Chevrolet Cruze during his maiden WTCC campaign, scoring on only a handful of occasions but picking up a career-best second place finish at Suzuka.

For 2015, however, Borkovic will drive race-winning Honda Civic machinery under the Italian Proteam Racing banner, taking over from Mehdi Bennani, who defects to Sebastien Loeb's eponymous satellite Citroen operation.

Renowned for his substantial 6ft 8in height, Borkovic believes the move to Proteam and the Honda will see him challenging for more podiums in 2015.

"I am starting my second, hopefully better season with a new team and car," said Borkovi. "I am really grateful to Campos Racing for our cooperation in my debut WTCC season, when I achieved one of the best results in my career by coming second in Suzuka.

"Together with JAS and Proteam I will have to learn fast about the Honda as best I can so I can be ready for the pre-season tests. The most important thing is that I managed to fit in the Honda with my 207cm frame, but I believe they should build a larger cockpit for my size!"

"I always wanted to drive a Honda because of their amazing racing history. That's why I am really happy and looking forward to driving my new car, and I am hoping for great results. I am very glad that my sponsors as well as Serbia and the city of Pancevo recognised the potential of promotion through racing.

"I will proudly carry the Serbian flag, the name of my hometown Pancevo and my sponsor's logos worldwide. I hope my flag will be flown on the podium this year as well. I am grateful to all my sponsors for allowing me to continue my racing career through
