DRIVERS: ROBERTO GUERRERO

Name: Roberto Guerrero
Nationality: Colombia
Date of birth: November 16, 1958 - Medellin, Colombia

Unobtrusively talented graduate of Jim Russell's famous UK-based racing driver's school, Guerrero raced effectively in Formula 3 up until 1981. With sponsorship from Cafe do Colombia he bought a season with Mo Nunn's tiny Ensign team, continuing when it became Theodore Racing the following year. When it became clear that Formula 1 was not going to lead him much further, he moved to America and carved his career on the Indycar scene despite surviving an accident testing at Indianapolis in 1987 which left him in a coma for 17 days.
