About Daniel Morad
A lot of people ask me what I do in life. For most race car drivers, it’s a pretty straight forward question. Aside from being a World Karting Champion, Formula BMW Champion and a 2017 Rolex 24 Hour at Daytona Winner, I try to be more than just a race car driver. So of course, I am a Canadian race car driver from Toronto, but that is a pretty vague answer.
I love what I do.
What exactly is that?
Well, when I’m not racing around the world, I am a Brand Ambassador for Sonax Canada, a Race Coach for gentlemen drivers and young up and coming talent, a Driving Instructor for several manufactures and a public speaker for all things related to racing, performance, driving tips and self motivation.
Aside from motorsport
It's important to keep in shape away from the track. When I was 10 years old, my peers made fun of me for being a little chubby. I quickly decided to do something about it and joined my local soccer club. I continue to play to this day in drop ins and Sunday leagues. I also love playing hockey. I mean, I am Canadian after all. I play tennis, golf and squash as well. Okay let’s clarify this, I am a sports junkie!
I am also the Co-Founder of Moradness, a lifestyle brand focused on snapback hats with amazing under brim design that add that unique touch to your everyday style, and a the track! I also have a passion for music and started making mix tapes to work out to. I go by the DJ name, Moradness.
When I was 8 years old
I spectated my first racing event at the Toronto Indy, I was asking around for autographs and pictures with the drivers. They were all heroes in my eyes. Some were nicer than others. That really left an imprint on my life. I was heartbroken that day by many drivers. I am thankful to those who broke my heart that day because it made me the man I am today. No matter what, I will always have time for the people who come to support what we do.
