Andrés Méndez signed with Team GDT for the 2012 Star Mazda Championship.
The 19-year-old Colombian driver has been actively competing in karts for the past several years and has limited experience in the car ranks. He competed in the 2009 Jim Russell Future Driver Search and has tested a F2000 car. Additionally, he is a regular in the 6 Horas de Bogotá race.
Team GDT plans to announce a few more drivers to partner with Méndez in the coming weeks.
