Sort of old news by now; Sebastian Saavedra signed with Andretti Green/AFS Racing for the 2009 Indy Lights Series.
Before committing to the Indy Lights Series with AFS/AGR, Saavedra also tested with Sam Schmidt Motorsports. On top of his Indy Lights tests, the 18-year-old completed a test with US RaceTronics in their Atlantic Championship car.
Sebastian spent last season running in the German F3 Series, where he finished 2nd in the overall championship. He finished inside the top ten 14 times in 18 starts, winning 3 races.
