Conquest Racing to run Sebastien Saavedra at season finale
INDIANAPOLIS (September 27, 2010) - Conquest Racing will have another rookie among its team when it takes on the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway October 2 with Sebastien Saavedra taking over driving duties of the #36 Conquest Racing machine.
The Cafes do Brasil Indy 300 will be the second IZOD IndyCar Series event for the Colombian who made his series debut at this year's Indianapolis 500. Additionally, Saavedra made 11 starts in Firestone Indy Lights in 2010 with Bryan Herta Autosport scoring one win from pole at Iowa Speedway and claiming five top five finishes.
"I'm really happy to have an opportunity to drive for Conquest Racing at the last race of the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series season at Homestead-Miami Speedway on October 2nd," said Sebastien Saavedra. "It will be tough because I have not driven an Indy car for four months but I am up to the challenge. Fortunately I have a test day to prepare for the weekend. The IZOD IndyCar Series is my main focus for 2011, so it's really important to have an opportunity to start preparing now. Finally, to have my good friend Bertrand Baguette as a teammate means a lot."
Some important partners will be supporting Saavedra in his second IndyCar Series race with Coldeportes, Laboratorios Sumimed, Autoniza, Smart Life, Belles of Ireland and Seringel Ltda featured on the #36 Conquest Racing car.
"We're known as a team that likes to work with and give young drivers a chance and having Sebastien join us for Homestead reinforces that," said Conquest Racing team owner Eric Bachelart. "He may only be 20 years old but as he has proved age has nothing to do with driving a race car. His performances have shown that he is a quick learner and we're really excited to have the opportunity to work with him. I think he and Bertrand, who has been making great progress throughout the season, will be a strong rookie combination in Miami."
