He’s been official driver for Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche. He’s an automotive engineering student. He’s won in T4 in the first round of the Spanish Cross-Country Rally Championship, his debut in cross-country rallies. And he’s just 21. And yes, he’s to start in Baja TT Dehesa Extremadura. Meet Spain’s Fidel Castillo Ruiz!

Fidel is a 21-year-old automotive engineering student with a deep passion for motorsports. He made his debut in the world of cross-country rallies earlier this month at the TT Jaen Mar de Olivos, the opening round of the Spanish championship, and emerged victorious in the T4 category, securing third place overall.
Although Fidel is new to cross-country rallies, he is no stranger to motorsports. He began his driving career at the age of 16 and quickly gained experience at the Ascari circuit, which prepared him for the Italian Prototypes Championship. Since then, Fidel has raced for Lamborghini and Ferrari in various championships, including the Italian F3 Prototypes Championship, the GTS Endurance Championship, and the Sprint Championship. This year, he will compete in the European GTS Championship with Porsche as an official driver for Porsche Belgium.

In Baja TT Dehesa Extremadura he’ll start with a T4 Can-Am of Ahuja Racing Team, with co-driver Marc Sola.
Fidel is dividing his time between the smoothest and the roughest tracks, as he has taken on a programme in cross-country rallies, including not only the Spanish Championship and the European Cup but also some World Championship rounds, like Rallye du Maroc. And yes, his ultimate goal is the Dakar Rally.
What can we say? Looking forward!
