Bio:
The son of a Spanish Rally champion, Oriol Servia has been racing since he was real young, He started out at the age of 5 and over time began advancing steadily up the racing ranks in different racing series around the world.

Before joining the Champ Car World Series in the year 2000 with PPI Motorsports, Servia was the 1999 Dayton Indy Lights champion, finishing second in five races and earning three pole positions. Servia has had success during his career in Champ Car as well. He finished a career-best second in the championship standings in 2005, and gave Dale Coyne Racing its first podium finish since 1996 with a third-place run at Laguna Seca in the year 2004. In 2008 Servia was unable to find a full time ride within Champ Car and was able to join the IRL Indy Car season that year and raced part time again in the Indy Car series in 2009 while hopping from team to team. For 2010 Oriol Servia will make his long awaited return to Champ Cars with Forsythe Championship Racing. Servia replaces 2009 driver David Martinez.

Servia is a graduate of the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya with a degree in mechanical engineering. An avid motocross rider, he received his first off-road motorcycle from his father, Salvadore, when he was 2 years old.
