Joao Paulo de Oliveira will make his World Touring Car Championship debut at Okayama later this month with the SUNRED squad.
The 28-year-old Brazilian, who has been a front-runner in the Formula Nippon and Super GT championships over the past 18 months, will drive one of the team's SEAT Leon TFSIs in the Japanese round.
Among the former Japanese F3 champion's rivals at Okayama will be his regular Super GT co-driver Seiji Ara, who is racing a Wiechers-Sport BMW.
