Former GP driver Luis Perez Sala joins HRT as advisor

Perez Sala joins HRT as advisorFormer Spanish Formula 1 driver Luis Perez Sala has been appointed an advisor to Thesan Capital, the Madrid-based investment company that acquired the HRT Formula 1 team earlier this month.

Perez Sala attended this year's British Grand Prix in order to carry out a report on the team for Thesan Capital.

The 52-year old has strong links to Luis Valls Taverner, owner of Banco Popular, which was involved in Jose Ramon Carabante's sale of Hispania to Thesan.

During 1988 and 1989, Perez Sala competed in Formula 1 for Minardi. More recently he has been involved in the Circuit de Catalunya's Young Driver programme.

The Joves Pilot scheme played an important role in the careers of, among others, Toro Rosso Formula 1 driver Jaime Alguersuari, DTM racer Miguel Molina and leading Formula 3 Euro Series contender Daniel Juncadella, who is also Perez Sala's nephew.
