Forgeios, Luca

As a child growing up with ADHD, Luca found himself up against a unique set of challenges, and with the help of teachers and family, found his own way to navigate everyday social and academic trials. His hard work paid off, garnering him a seat in one of NYC’s most prestigious schools, Bay Ridge Prep, graduating with honors in 2013. By the age of 13, Forgeois found a passion in race car driving, thriving on the sport’s high-octane excitement, while reveling in the rewards of practice, dedication and motivation.

In 2008, Luca was named champion of the Florida Winter Tour Rotax Junior kart races. In 2009, Forgeois took the wins at the WKA Yamaha Can and HPV Light, FWT Rotax Junior and FWT Formula Junior Tag races. In 2010, Luca graduated to Senior FWT Rotax champion, and was crowned Supernats Senior champion. In 2011, Forgeois raced to his biggest win yet, National Class Champion at the USF2000.

Forgeois has set his sights on his greatest challenge to date: securing a coveted spot in the 2015 IndyCar Indy Lights 500.
