Oliver Jarvis joined the full factory Audi LMP1 program in 2012. In 2013 Olly won the 12 Hours of Sebring overall with an Audi R18 e-tron quattro, as well as the Rolex 24 at Daytona GT class with an Audi R8 GRAND-AM.

This year Oliver Jarvis will have a busy season season. He will again be driving with Audi and the R18 e-tron quattro. He will be competing at both the 6 Hours of Spa (Round 2 of the FIA WEC) and the Le Mans 24 Hours (Round 3). He will also be competing with Lexus in the Japanese Super GT. Jarvis will drive a factory supported Lexus RC-F from Team SARD in the GT500 class.
