Juan Pablo Montoya, two-time Indy 500 champion and current IMSA driver with Acura Team Penske, is the latest online driving instructor for SAFEisFAST.com.
Montoya’s extensive motorsport career spans from being CART champion in 1999, to competing in Formula 1, and in NASCAR with Chip Ganassi Racing. After winning the Indy 500, Montoya earned himself a seat with the Williams F1 team in 2001 before going on to race for McLaren in 2005.
His best F1 season was 2003 when he won the Monaco Grand Prix, allowing him to complete two-thirds of the unofficial motor sport triple crown, and finished 11 points behind Michael Schumacher in the championship.
During the 2014 season he made a comeback to U.S. open-wheel racing by joining Team Penske in IndyCar, and in 2015 he won the Indy 500 for a second time. That same season Montoya tied on points for the championship with Scott Dixon, missing out by virtue of Dixon’s three race wins to his two.
Since then has won the Race of Champions Nations Cup for Team Columbia and competed in the Rolex 24 At Daytona 24
