Career

After a strong karting career, he drove in Spanish Formula Three, before moving to the World Series by Nissan in 2004. The series was renamed World Series by Renault in 2005 while he continued in the series, finishing 2nd in the standings with two race wins. In 2006 he started racing in the GP2 Series with Campos Racing, and also tested for the MF1 Racing Formula One team on September 19.[1] The team was bought out by Spyker and on January 30, 2007 Vallés was named the team's official reserve driver.

He returned to GP2 for 2008, driving for the FMS International team in the GP2 Asia Series. He remained with the team for the first round of the 2008 GP2 Series season, but then switched to BCN Competicion. He elected to miss the final round of the season at Monza to focus on his sportscar commitments.[2] Vallés returned to the GP2 Asia Series, by replacing Chris van der Drift (racing for A1 Team New Zealand at their home round of the 2008–09 A1 Grand Prix season at Taupo Motorsport Park) at Trident Racing for the third round of the season in Bahrain.[3] Vallés and van der Drift would later team up to be the drivers for Epsilon Euskadi in the 2009 World Series by Renault season.

Additionally, Vallés has begun a sportscar career in 2008 with Epsilon Euskadi by driving in the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 2008 1000km of Silverstone.
