Female Single-Seater Drivers Around the World: Spain

Carmen Boix

Carmen Jorda and Maria de Villota now have their own profiles.
This page will be refilled further when new drivers are found!

Carmen Boix - raced in the MRF Formula 2000 Challenge in India in the 2012-2013 season. She was 24th in the championship, with a best finish of tenth. Previously, she was active in karting around Europe. In 2009, she appears to have tested a GP4 car, although she did not race it. In 2011, she was shortlisted for the Marzac Foundation’s Formula BMW sponsorship, but she did not win. At the end of 2011, she also tested a BMW for the Italian Superstars series, but again, did not race. In 2014, she was linked with a drive in a SEAT Leon. It was 2017 when she finally reappeared, driving a Ford Mustang in the Whelen NASCAR Euroseries. She was eleventh overall, with three top ten finishes: sixth at Franciacorta, ninth at Valencia and tenth at Hockenheim.

Marta Garcia - highly-rated junior single-seater driver from Spain. In 2016, she raced in the second half of the Spanish Formula 4 championship. She was eighth overall, with five fifth places as her best result. Her lowest finish was eighth. This follows on from a karting career, which included two championship wins in 2015. She began racing at ten, and was sixteen when she switched to cars. She intended to race in Formula 3 in 2017, but had another season in F4. She was ninth in the Spanish championship, normally finishing in the top ten with a high point of fifth, at Jerez. Renault Sport had been supporting her, but they were unconvinced by her performances in 2017 and dropped her at the end of the year.

Sara Garcia – raced in single-seaters in Spain and Portugal. She was tenth in the Spanish Master Junior Formula in 2007, driving for Emilio de Villota’s team. The following year, she raced in the Portuguese Formula Renault championship, running as “Formula Junior”, but only did two races, finishing tenth in both. Prior to her single-seater experiences, she was successful in karting championships in her home, the Canary Islands.
