Tatiana Calderon Noguera Autographed Postcard

Here is the third of three returns I had last Tuesday, the token monthly non-hockey-related one, this time featuring race car driver Tatiana Calderon Noguera:


It's a promo postcard, signed in black sharpie; the front shows her current car and a close-up of her face while the back lists fun facts and her three main sponsors.

She is currently in her second season in the European F3 series, her first with Jo Zeller Racing. She participated in the Euroformula Winter Series as well as the Florida Winter Series with Emilio de Villota Motorsport, where she won one race out of 13 (in Sebring).

She has won karting championships, finished in the top-3 in the 6 Hours Of Bogota event twice, and is following the usual course to end up in Formula 1. Coming from the city that has brought Gilles Villeneuve, Jacques Villeneuve, Patrick Carpentier, Alexandre Tagliani and Andrew Ranger to open-wheel racing, F1 is pretty much the only racing series I follow nowadays (and even then, with all the stories of corruption and relative lack of likable pilots compared to 10 or 20 years ago, I follow that a lot less than I used to as well).

But Tatiana Calderon Noguera is a fresh face full of promise, and we'll see how far she can take her talents and addiction to high speeds.
