Dominik Kraihamer will be joining the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship with the Lotus LMP2 team for the full season.

Having already taken part in the FIA World Endurance Championship, European Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 23-year-old Kraihamer brings relevent experience to the team.

“I am extremely happy to compete with Lotus in FIA WEC this year and I am glad that this cooperation came into being with the help of my sponsor ‘Eat the Ball'” Kraihamer commented.

Kraihamer acknowledged the heritage behind the team “Lotus is a myth in motor racing and especially for me as an Austrian, the history that Jochen Rindt used to have with the make inspires me.”

“I followed the team last year and I am very pleased to work with such an experienced and professional squad throughout the whole season. I grew up in endurance racing and I know that team spirit is very important. I will give my best to help the team and I am looking forward to having those great results that I failed to achieve in the last two years due to many technical problems. I can’t wait to be in the car for the first time and to do the first quick laps.”
