Ricardo Sperafico (born July 23, 1979 in Toledo, Paraná) is a Brazilian racing driver.

Career[edit]

He resides in a family of racers, twin brother of Rodrigo, and with two cousins, Alexandre and the late Rafael. He began his career in Europe and won the Italian Formula 3000 series in 2000, before moving to International F3000 competition the following season. In 2002, Ricardo, Rodrigo and Alexandre all raced in the series with Ricardo finishing the best, 5th, driving for Petrobras Junior Team. He finished runner-up in 2003 before taking 2004 off.

In 2005 he competed for the rookie-of-the-year title in Champ Car, driving for Dale Coyne Racing. He had a difficult time coming to grips with the series, with no less than five different team-mates over the course of the year. His best finish was 8th in Denver. Alexandre also contested occasional Champ Car events from 2003 to 2005. He has competed in the Stock Car Brasil series since 2007.
