Garcia pleased with Atlantic deal

Having topped the times during testing at Palm Beach, Borja Garcia says he is pleased to have inked a deal with Condor Motorsports for the 2009 Cooper Tires Atlantic Championship season.

Garcia moves to the States having spent recent years competing in the Renault World Series and GP2 and will hope to build on the performance he showed during the Palm Beach test, where he topped all four sessions.

In a move masterminded by his management company CJ Motorsport Consulting, Garcia follows in the footsteps of fellow CJ driver Franck Perera, who successfully took up the same challenge in 2007 and made it through the IndyCar Series before sponsorship issues for the team forced him to give up his seat.

“We're all really happy to welcome Borja to the team,” Carlos Bobeda, owner of Condor Motorsports, said. “Borja's achievements in Europe speak for themselves and he comes from the same management stable as Franck Perera, with whom we had a lot of success in 2007, so I am expecting great things from him and so far, I haven't been disappointed.”

Garcia himself said he was pleased to ink the deal to race in the USA for the season ahead.

“It has always been an ambition of mine to race in the USA and I am extremely grateful to both Carlos Bobeda from Condor Motorsports and to my management team at CJ Motorsport Consulting for this new opportunity,” he said. “Atlantic is a fantastic Championship.

“It offers excellent prize money and will give me the opportunity to showcase my talent in the United Stated so that I can start building a long-term racing career over here, which is our goal.”
