Victor Garcia has inked a deal with Team Moore to run the 2011 Indy Lights Series.

Garcia spent last season in the World Series by Renault, where he logged two top-10s but struggled with consistency; compiling eight DNFs while driving for KMP Racing.

The 21-year-old Spaniard has completed several tests with Team Moore. Garcia will join Gustavo Yacaman under the team tent. The two were teammates during the 2008 Spanish F3 season with TEC Auto. Garcia’s familiarity with Yacaman should help ease his transition to Indy Lights.

“First of all, I have to thank Team Moore Racing for giving me this opportunity,” Garcia said in a release. “I am really happy and confident to be signing with them. We have already worked together [testing] and I really get on well with my crew and the whole team.”

Garcia’s previous experience includes karting, Formula Renault (2.0), Spanish F3, British F3 (International), and WSR (3.5).

Team Moore plans to test Garcia and Yacaman this week at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The 2011 Indy Lights season will get underway March 27 on the Streets of St. Petersburg.
