Before Formula 1200, Daniel Demaras spent years racing karts, including two seasons with team PRO. His teammates included Chad Webster and Logan Ploder, who continue to have success in karting to this very day.
Over the past two weeks, RySpec Racing has given several kart racers the opportunity to turn their first laps in a race car. The team brought their Radical out to Toronto Motorsports Park and gave these young men the opportunity of a lifetime.
Just to show how small the racing community is, Daniel’s former teammates Chad and Logan ended up testing a Radical raced this year by Peter Hanson (his name is next to the cockpit) who actually competed against Daniel in F1200 in 2022.
Above is a video of Logan’s first laps at Cayuga, chasing a team car to learn the line.
