The youngest of seven Argentinean children, Perez began his racing career at the age of 16 in the Super Karting Sedan Series, quickly rising through the ranks to become the Karting Regional Champion and placing fourth in the Buenos Aires State Championships in 2000. Since then, Perez has only built upon that success:

2001 Ascended to the Sport Prototype 2.0 Series and competed in three F-2000 SSA Canadian Formula Ford 2000 Series races, helping him earn him the title of the Karting Buenos Aires State Champion (2001), fourth overall in the championship, as well as the Rookie of the Year award.
2002 Raced in the Super Renault 2.0 Series (six races).
2003 Entered the Sport Prototype 2.0 Series and finished second in the Championship with six podium finishes. Additionally, raced the Rally Argentino (three races).
2004 Continued to race in the Sport Prototype 2.0 Series, earning third in the championship that year with four wins and six podium finishes.
2005 Won the Formula 3 South American Championship and placed second in the GT 2000 Sport Prototype with seven wins and five podium finishes.
2006 Competed in four GT 2000 Prototype races, taking home three wins. Additionally, competed in three TRV6 races, tested IPS car with Genoa Racing (end of 2005) and a test IPS car with Sam Schmidt Motor Sports (October 2006)..

Perez got his big chance to race with one of the best American teams in 2007, entering the Indy Pro Series with the Target Chip Ganassi Racing team under the guidance of John Della Penna. Perez performed all pre-season testing; however, his season was cut short after a serious accident at the first race of the season in Homestead Florida. After a long year of rehabilitation, Perez and Della Penna team up again to race in the Ferrari Challenge Series 2008 season.

“All I’ve ever wanted to do was race.”
