Hi, I’m Gmo. I’m your data guy and driving coach… AKA your worst nightmare!Gianmarco Raimondo
No race team is perfect. Individuals can get lost in the paddock of the bigger teams. Smaller teams might not have the same technical resources. Of course, cost is always an issue. But Daniel Demaras has been under the PRO tent for the past two years because of the talented people on the team.
Every weekend, Daniel Demaras has the opportunity to train with PROs like Curtis Fox and Darryl Timmers. But Daniel also spends a lot of time with Gianmarco Raimondo. ‘Gmo’ has been racing professionally for over 18 years. He was Vice-Champion of the European F3 Series and the first Canadian to race GP2. His career began with karting through to 2008 when he made his debut in single seater racing. He’s raced in the Formula BMW USA series, Formula 3 Italia, European Formula 3, GP2 with Trident Racing, AutoGP with Super Nova and GT racing with Maserati in the Pirelli World Challenge as well as an Indy Lights test program in North America. Every weekend, Gmo analyses Demaras’ on track performance through on-board video and data from the MyChron.
But this past weekend, Gianmarco strapped on his helmet and entered the “Mechanics Race” at the Briggs & Stratton Summerfest. For a guy who’s raced single-seaters right up to GP2…he looked very at-home in the ‘arrive & drive’ karts!
