Having ridden motorcycles since the age of seven, the first half of José Luis García’s sporting career was firmly focused on two wheels. Victory in the 1982 80cc Senior National Enduro Trophy and a top 10-finish in the 1987 Baja Aragón were particular highlights of his early years.
Motorsport was put on hold while García and his wife Pilar Espinar founded Al Kamel Systems, a company specialising in sports timing and television graphics which currently provides services to international competitions such as FIA Formula E, FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but back on the track a switch to sportscar racing in 2007 unlocked García’s four-wheel potential. He went on to alternate appearances in the Seat León Super Cup and various Spanish Endurance and GT Championships, picking up a number of race victories and podiums.
García once again challenged himself in a new discipline when he made his off-road debut in 2017, contesting his first full All Terrain Rally Championship in Spain. In 2019 he won the national YXZ1000R Cup title and the European Final of the Yamaha Cup in Baja Portalegre, while a career highlight was victory in the 2019 Ral.li Osona.
García currently races in the SCER (Spanish Super Rally Championship), and is dovetailing this with his RX2e commitments.
