Borja García (born 15 December 1982) is a Spanish race car driver. He was the 2004 Spanish Formula Three champion, and raced in the inaugural GP2 Series season.

Career[edit]

Garcia was born in Valencia. His career started in karting in 1993, where he stayed until 1999. He moved up to Spanish Formula Toyota in 2000, comfortably winning the title, before moving to Formula Nissan 2000 in 2001 with the Campos team, who now race in GP2 Series. He stayed in Nissan 2000 for 2002, driving for both the Esuela Lois and Venturini teams, whilst also racing some of the Spanish Formula Three season for the GTA team.

He raced the full Spanish F3 season in 2003 with the same team, before moving to the Racing Engineering outfit in 2004 with whom he won the title. Due to his success he stayed with the team as they moved to GP2 Series for 2005, where he partnered with Neel Jani.

In 2006 he raced in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series championship for the RC Motorsport team, finishing second overall behind Alx Danielsson. He returned to GP2 in 2007, driving for Durango. He moved back to FR3.5 for 2008.

He was the driver of the Sevilla FC entry in the Superleague Formula for the 2008 season. He was the driver for all the rounds and Sevilla finished 10th in points with one win at the 2008 Donington round.

In 2009 he has moved to the Atlantic Championship, and he's currently sixth in the championship.
