INCREASE BRAND EXPOSURE
Sponsor a Canadian Racer
My name is Daniel Demaras, and I am a racer from Toronto, Canada. I’ve competed in many karting series including TRAK, MIKA, MRFKC, Pfaff Kartsport Cup, KartStars Canada and the K1 Speed e-World Championships.
I can help raise awareness of your brand in 24-35 year-old and 45-54 year-old consumers in Canada. My official website http://www.Demaras.com has doubled in popularity each of the past two years with over 57,000 views and more than 1,000 articles published.
My YouTube channel’s 250+ creative, original videos that have been viewed more than 10,00 times, and my online presence is growing through my Instagram and Facebook social media channels.
I have the most loyal supporters in Canadian karting who can help increase exposure for your brand. Sponsorship is a partnership.
From Cadet to Masters
I started racing in 2014 in the cadet division of CRKC at the age of 10. I became a constant contender for podiums, poles, and wins, taking two CRKC Championships.
In 2017, I moved up to club racing in TRAK and MIKA’s Briggs & Stratton Junior division, where I made my mark as a skilled wheel-to-wheel racer throughout the season.
Then in 2018 I moved up to the highly competitive Briggs & Stratton Senior division; racing against huge grids of 40+ racers.
Finally, in 2020 I reached Briggs & Stratton Masters where I compete against the most experienced racers on the track. I’ve taken poles, podiums and wins, culminating in winning the 2020 Championship in the Toronto Racing Association of Karters.
I consistently bring home podium finishes and even earned the Pole Position at the 2021 National Championships. I compete with the best kart racers in Canada and hold my own against them.
K1 Speed Electric Karts
As one of the top racers at the local K1 Speed in Toronto, I qualified to represent Canada at the inaugural K1 Speed E-World Championships in 2019. The event brought the top electric kart racers from around the world to California to compete for glory.
I fought my hardest, competing against some quick competitors, and ultimately finished 3rd place overall.
Representing Canada and standing on the podium spraying champagne was one of the proudest moments of my racing career to date.
I have again qualified for the E-World Championships and will be back in the US in 2022 where I hope to improve upon my previous result and make my my friends, family and my country proud!
Racing to End Alzheimer’s
In early 2019, I teamed up with Racing to End Alzheimer’s (R2ENDALZ), who’s core purpose is to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Alzheimer’s.
Their rolling billboard is their No.23 Audi RS3 race car competing in the Michelin Pilot Challenge series. Donors honour their loved ones by emblazoning their names on the race car.
I gathered donations on my website and social media channels. I put tremendous effort into holding two fundraisers in 2019, including a charity race at a local indoor go-kart track, raising over $1,000 in one day.
in late 2019 I visited Baycrest Hospital in Toronto and presented a $4,196 cheque to help fight Alzheimer’s.
Engagement & Excitement
My racing career would not be possible without my sponsors. Their support over the years gets me to the racetrack to do what I love. Promoting my sponsors is more than logos on my racing suit.
I hosted a promotional event at local café Nostalgia Coffee Company, where we created a buzz in the area. I set up a racing simulator and let the kids try out my racing kart for size.
I brought my No. 412 racing kart out for a spin around Scarboro Subaru, and displayed it in the showroom. This helped demonstrate that the dealership gives back to the community by supporting a young racer.
This community involvement reflected positively on all the sponsors I’ve partnered with.
