Mike Conway will make his third overall, and second consecutive, start for Toyota Racing in next weekend’s FIA World Endurance Championship season finale, the Six Hours of Sao Paulo.

The Englishman will again fill in for Kazuki Nakajima, although not originally planned.

A last-minute administrative problem (visa) will see Nakajima out of the seat, and thus Conway will continue alongside Stephane Sarrazin and Alex Wurz in the No. 7 Toyota TS040 Hybrid as he has at both Circuit of the Americas and Bahrain.

Conway is likely in the frame for a full-season seat in 2015, particularly on the strength of the win with Sarrazin and Wurz last weekend in Bahrain. It marked Conway’s first overall win in the WEC, after claiming four wins in LMP2 a year ago.
