Campos Racing is a Spanish motor racing team, run by former Formula One driver Adrián Campos. The team has been successful in Formula Three and the GP2 Series.

History[edit]

After retiring from racing, Campos formed his own team at the end of 1997, under the name Campos Motorsport. In 1998 the team began by competing in the new Open Fortuna by Nissan, with Marc Gené and Antonio García as drivers. Gené won the championship and García finished fifth, with Campos taking the teams title. Gené stepped up to Formula One in 1999, and his place in the team was taken by karting driver Fernando Alonso. Alonso went on to win the Euro Open Movistar by Nissan as it was renamed, with García finishing fifth again and Campos retaining the teams title. With Alonso moving onto International Formula 3000, García led the team in 2000, winning the championship and also helping Campos to win a third consecutive teams title. The series became the World Series by Nissan in 2002.

In 2004 the team switched its focus to the Spanish Formula Three Championship, running two teams with four drivers. In 2005, the team's name was changed to Campos Racing and they set up a team in the new GP2 Series, as well as running a team in Spanish Formula 3 as well as its Copa de España F300 class, which it won with Arturo Llobell in 2005 and Germán Sánchez in 2006.

Under the name of Campos Grand Prix, the team finished third in the GP2 drivers and teams championships, with Giorgio Pantano and Vitaly Petrov as drivers. In 2008, they won the teams championship and finished third in the drivers championship with Lucas di Grassi. They won their first overall Spanish F3 crown in 2008 with Germán Sánchez, and retained that title (now known as the European F3 Open) in 2009 with Bruno Méndez.

After the 2008 season, Campos passed control of his GP2 team to Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag, who renamed it Addax Team. In 2009, Campos was awarded a Formula One entry for his team to race in the 2010 season, originally under the Campos Grand Prix name, but the name was soon changed to Campos Meta. After financial struggles, the team was bought out in February 2010 by majority shareholder José Ramón Carabante, who renamed it Hispania Racing.

Campos will return to GP2 in 2014 replacing the Addax Team on the grid, with drivers Arthur Pic and Kimiya Sato. Alexander Rossi replaced Sato at the Hockenheimring due to Sato competing in an Auto GP race.[1] Pic will be retained for the 2015 season with Rio Haryanto joining the team. As of 2015, Campos will also partake the GP3 Series in place of Hilmer Motorsport.
