WEC: Mike Conway joins Toyota

30 year old Mike Conway will join Toyota Racing as a reserve and test driver for 2014.

Conway drove for G-Drive Racing in the WEC with a Oreca 03 Nissan shared with Roman Rusinov and John Martin.

From 2008 to 2010 he was competing in the GP2 Series and then from 2009 till 2013 in the IZOD Indycar Series where he scored two wins, including a surprise win at this years Detroit GP where he won Race 1 for Dayle Coyne Racing.

He also drove in the American Le Mans Series for Level 5 Motorsports at CTMP (better known as Mosport) as a replacement for the at that time injured Ryan Briscoe.

I hope that Toyota get’s it together with the resverve driver thing, not like Lotus in F1 (you know the story).

Conway was impressive in the WEC this year, but i also liked his race at Mosport.

Toyota made a good choice there. He may be not the fastest, but he is a very consistent driver who brings the car home safely.
