Beginning his racing career riding motocross events at the age of four, Santiago “Santi” Urrutia won the Latin American Motocross Championship for children aged 4-6. He progressed into karts, earning five karting championships in eight years, including the 2010 Uruguayan Master Category Karting Championship. Switching to cars, Urrutia raced for two years in the Italian-based Formula Abarth Championship, followed by single seasons in Formula 3 and, in 2014, the GP3 Series in support of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship. He moved to the U.S. in 2015 and won the Pro Mazda title, earning him the #SoulRed Mazda colors in 2016. Urrutia finished an agonizingly close second in the Indy Lights championship in both 2016 and 2017.
