Visa issue forces Nakajima to sit out WEC season finale

Mike Conway will fill in for the star Toyota driver.

Mike Conway will make his third start of the WEC season next weekend, doing so once again for Toyota Racing. He will replace Kazuki Nakajima in an unexpected change of plans.

Nakajima was supposed to race, but apparent Visa issues will preclude him from participating in the season finale, the team saying "Kazuki is not able to race due to delays in the visa application procedure which are out of the team's control." This means that we will see the Conway, Sarrazin, Wurz lineup in the No. 7 for the second consecutive weekend, winning together in Bahrain.

Conway is likely to have a full-time seat with the Toyota team come 2015.
