Jaxon Evans will make his full World Endurance Championship season debut this year with Dempsey-Proton Racing.
The New Zealander will be behind the wheel of the No.77 Porsche 911 RSR-19 for the six-round series, which begins in May.
The former Porsche Junior driver will be driving with Australian GT star Matt Campbell and Proton Competition team boss Christian Ried.
Evans made his WEC debut in last year’s 8 Hours of Bahrain. He claimed a podium in the GTE-AM class.
Last year, Evans also contested the Mobil Porsche Supercup. He finished fourth in the standings and scored a win in the opening race at Austria.
He will dovetail a third Supercup season this year alongside his WEC commitments.
Evans is the second Kiwi confirmed to be on the grid for the entire WEC campaign. Two-time Le Mans 24 Hour winner Brendon Hartley will be racing for Toyota Gazoo Racing in the No.8 LMP1 car.
The first round of the 2021 WEC season will be the 6 Hours of Spa on May 1.
The Le Mans 24 Hour is scheduled to be held over August 21-22.
