Franchitti began his career in Britain in the early 1990s. He competed in Formula Vauxhall, Formula Three, and was the winner of McLaren Autosport BRDC Award 1992.
Franchitti was unable to secure a single-seater driver in 1995, so the AMG team contracted him to race in touring cars in both the DTM and its successor, the International Touring Car Championship.
Franchitti was again left without a driver after the series collapsed in 1996, despite two seasons of relative success. Mercedes placed Franchitti with the Hogan Racing team in CART in 1997.

For the 2003 campaign, Team Green switched to IndyCar Series. Franchitti remained in the team. Franchitti won his first IndyCar race in the following season, despite being injured.
