Carmen Jordá Buades (born 28 May 1988) is a Spanish race car driver, who is currently competing in the GP3 Series. She was born in Alcoy, Spain. She currently resides in Valencia, Spain and Miami, Florida.

On January 19, 2010, Jordá tested an Indy Lights entry for Walker Racing at Sebring International Raceway[1] and later tested an Indy Lights entry for Andersen Racing at Barber Motorsports Park.[2] Almost two months later, on March 8, 2010, it was announced that Jordá had signed with Andersen Racing full–time to drive in the Firestone Indy Lights Series for the 2010 season.[2]

Firestone Indy Lights Series (2010)[edit]

Jordá made her first career start in the Firestone Indy Lights Series on March 28, 2010 at the Firestone Indy Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on the Streets of St. Petersburg, finishing in 11th position after starting in 15th.[3] After completing only one lap before retiring at Barber Motorsports Park,[4] Jordá had her best career finish in the Firestone Indy Lights Series and attained her first top–10 finish on April 18, 2010 at the Streets of Long Beach.[5] After a three–race hiatus, missing races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Iowa Speedway, and Watkins Glen International, Jordá made her return to competition at the Exhibition Place in Toronto on July 18, 2010. However, the race did not fare well for her, as she finished in last place.[6] The next weekend, at Edmonton City Centre Airport for the Edmonton Indy 100, Jordá completed only six laps in the race before encountering gearbox problems. She finished in last place[7] for the second straight race. Jordá did not make another start for the remainder of the season and missed races at Mid–Ohio Sports Car Course, Infineon Raceway, Chicagoland Speedway, Kentucky Speedway, and Homestead–Miami Speedway.

GP3[edit]

Jordá made her debut in GP3 with Ocean Racing Technology in 2012.[8] Jordá finished the season 28th in the driver's championship failing to score any points. In 2013 Jordá signed with Bamboo Engineering and finished the season 30th in the driver's championship. For 2014 season Jordá signed with Koiranen GP.[9]
