Current Formula E championship leader Nelson Piquet Jr is set to fill in for Max Chilton for British squad Carlin in Indy Lights at Toronto this weekend.

With Chilton preparing for his Le Mans 24 Hours debut as part of Nissan's LMP1 return, it means he is forced to skip round nine of the 2015 Indy Lights championship with Carlin as the two events clash.

Carlin has been able to source a well-qualified replacement in the shape of Piquet Jr, who notched up his second victory in the inaugural Formula E championship last weekend in Moscow.

The win saw him extend his championship lead to 17 points with two rounds remaining at the season finale in London on the 27-28 June.

The former Formula 1 driver will partner Ed Jones at Carlin, who currently sits second in the Indy Lights drivers' championship.
