Tatiana Calderón Noguera (born March 10, 1993) is a Colombian racing driver from Bogotá. She competes in the FIA European Formula 3 Championship for Carlin Motorsport.

Early life[edit]

Calderon was born and raised in Bogotá and entered the Colegio Helvetia when she was four years old. She studied there from 1997 until 2011 and learned English and German, along with her native Spanish. During the years she competed in kart races, before moving up categories and had to accommodate her races with her schooling, sometimes having to miss weeks of school. She graduated in June 2011 and moved to Indianapolis in order to train full-time for her team, Juncos Racing. Then, in 2012, she moved to Madrid, to compete in the European F3 category

Racing career[edit]

In the 2005-06 season she was a karting driver and won the Easykart National Championship.[1] In the next season she ended up third in the Colombian National Kart Championship, Rotax junior division. In 2008 she became the first female to win the Snap-On-Stars of Karting Divisional Championship-JICA Eastern Championship and was the IAME International Challenge champion.[2] She continued enjoying success next year when she ended up second in the Radical European Master Series — SR5 and second in the Colombian Rotax Senior Max Challenge. In 2010 she began her open-wheel auto racing career and moved to the Star Mazda Championship driving for Juncos Racing and finished tenth in her rookie season with a best finish of seventh in race 1 at Autobahn Country Club. She also won the Colombian Rotax Championship in karting that year. In the 2011 season, she ended in the sixth position, finishing third twice, marking her as the first and only woman so far to climb the podium in the series.[1]

In 2012, she moved to Europe, to race with the Emilio de Villota team.

In 2015, it was announced that she was to complete Carlin Motorsport's team for the 2015 FIA European Formula 3 Championship season.[3]
