Olivier Pla is a race car driver born in Toulousemarker, Francemarker on October 22 1981.

Career

Pla's career started in 2000 in French Formula Campus before moving on to French Formula Three Championship in 2001 with the Saulnier Racing team. In 2002 he moved to the ASM Formule 3 team, and stayed on there in 2003 when the series joined the Formula Three Euroseries. 2004 saw Pla leave the Euroseries, joining the World Series by Nissan for some races with the RC Motorsport and Carlin Motorsport teams.

In 2005 he raced in the inaugural GP2 Series season for David Price Racing. In the early part of the season he stalled on the grid several times - some blamed the GP2 cars for the high number of stallings, while others noticed that the same drivers seemed to be affected regularly. In another race he selected reverse instead of first gear and went backwards into his team-mate's car. However, he took advantage of the reverse grid system to finish eighth in Race One and thus take pole for Race Two twice (at Hockenheimmarker and Silverstonemarker), winning both those races to finish 11th in the championship. He remained with DPR for 2006, but was dropped mid-season after running out of sponsorship, after a difficult period which saw him score no points and injure his hand in Monacomarker.

In 2007, he competed in the German Porsche Carrera Cup. However, he was recalled to DPR in the latter stages of the GP2 season to replace the injured Christian Bakkerud. In 2008, he moved to sports car racing, driving a Lola Le Mans Prototype in the Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mansmarker.
