Inside the Helmet – Juan Pablo Garcia

2013-mediaday_052



In this edition of our driver interview series, Inside the Helmet, we speak with Juan Pablo Garcia, driver of the #2 Team Moore Racing machine in the Firestone Indy Lights series. Juan Pablo shares with us the story of how he came to see motorsports as a potential career choice as a young karter, his experiences in formula 2000 cars in Mexico, and in A1GP and Formula Renault and other junior formula series in Europe before coming to the US to race in the Firestone Indy Lights series. The road to a full-time gig with a solid team like Team Moore Racing was a long one for Juan Pablo, and he explains to us the challenges and frustrations that many young drivers face as they step up to more sophisticated, and costly, formulas. He also shares with us the absolute joy of running at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and how deceptively challenging oval racing can be. Grab your favourite beverage and enjoy!
