Ana Beatriz will race for Dreyer & Reinbold again at this weekend's IndyCar finale, the Cafes do Brasil Indy 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, while Sebastien Saavedra will return to the series for his second IndyCar appearance.

Beatriz previously raced at Sao Paulo and Indianapolis on one-off deals with DRR. This weekend she will be substituting for Mike Conway again, for whom she performed similar duties at Chicagoland: Conway had hoped to make a return to the series after his horrific Indianapolis 500 last lap crash, but was persuaded to think of the long game and delay his return until he is 100 per cent fit.

Meanwhile 20-year-old Colombian Saavedra will be Conquest Racing's sixth driver of the season as he hopes for a full-time seat in 2011. Saavedra competed in the Indy 500 for Bryan Herta Autosport, and is a race winner in Indy Lights, Formula 3 and Formula BMW.

Mario Moraes - who was taken to hospital after crashing in the Motegi race for possible back injuries - was released from hospital the next day after being given a clean bill of health, and will be able to race at Homestead for KV Racing as usual.
