Mexican driver Germán Quiroga has decided to go international. At a press conference during Race Day at the AutoExpo 2001 in Mexico City, Germán announced he has already tested the Reynard-Dodge used in the Barber Pro series.
He did so at Sebring this week during two days and adapted quickly to the car. He is currently closing negotiations with several sponsors, and will announce them early next year.
Germán is a former champion of the Touring Neon series (1998) and he was also fourth in the so called Formula México (the old tubular Barber cars) beaten by Luis Díaz (Indy Lights) and Carlos Contreras (NASCAR Trucks).
He has been a consistently fast driver in the Mustang and Neon series in the last few years and he has the record of poles for the Neon series in Mexico.
Germán explained in the press conference that he leaves "because you have to go forward in life, and representing Mexico in other countries is a dream. I hope I can give you all great results.......If I want to get to CART I need to know the tracks and cars an this is the first step".
