Sebastian Saavedra has had a long career in motorsports that so far has culminated with an IMSA LMP2 class win at the Rolex 24 hours of Daytona. He also has multiple NTT Indycar Series starts under his belt including a pole position at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. We caught up with him at the 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach Press Day where he was giving rides to celebrities (hear their stories here) and VIPs in the IndyCar Two-Seater. These days he’s also heavily involved in young driver coaching and management. Having a mentor that can show you the ropes early on in your career can make a huge difference in how far you progress in motorsports. A friendly guy off the track, you can tell that his heart is definitely yearning to get back on track to do what he knows and loves. Enjoy!

Sebastian Saavedra is always happy to be at the race track!

“Hangin’ loose” in short sleeves at the seaside Long Beach street course sure beats the weather in Indy!
