Jersey driver James Walker will race in the European Le Mans Series once again after securing a last-minute deal with British team Greaves Motorsport.

Fellow British drivers Tony Wells and James Littlejohn join Walker, 29, for Saturday's opening race at Silverstone.

"I can't wait to get back behind the wheel of an LMP2 car and return to Silverstone," Walker told his website.external-link

He enjoyed success at Silverstone last year, winning a World Endurance Championship race with team Delta-ADR.

There are five four-hour-long races in this year's European Le Mans Series calendar, ending in Lisbon in October.

Walker was a reserve driver for G-Drive Racing at the world-famous Le Mans 24-Hour Race in 2013.
