Simona de Silvestro

After making a name for herself in the European ranks..2005 in Forula Renault, '06 Formula BMW (1 win). From there she raced in 2007, '08 and '09 in the Atlantic series ( getting 4 wins and 4 poles).

Next was 3 seasons with Keith Wiggins and HVM Racing. The first two seasons were ok with moderate success, but 2012 was a real struggle. HVM was the lone team to run the Lotus for the entire season. Greatly under powered they soldiered on. With little hope of being competitive Simona continued to give it her best never complaining their situation. On October 30, 2012, Simona signed on to KV Racing Technology for the 2013 IndyCar Season, driving the No. 78 with sponsorship from the Nuclear Clean Air Energy and making KV Racing Technology a two-car team.
