Get To Know Daniel Campanella
|Tell us a little about who you are and how you got involved in Racing Watercraft?|
I was born on September 15, 1996. I like to make goals for myself to accomplish on and off of the race course. I started riding at the age of 12 on a Kawasaki 650sx up at my cottage. When I turned 14, I convinced my dad to get an old square nose superjet. There was a local charity race for one of my friends that had gotten injured that my dad and I thought would be fun to ride in. After that race I couldn’t stop, it was just too fun. So my dad let me race his SXR the following year and it was a blast!
|What do you consider your greatest Accomplishment?|
My greatest accomplishment would be getting great support, and being the 2012 Jr. National Champion.
What plans do you have for the 2013 season?
Currently, I am on the Canadian Watercross Association tour. I am also hoping to be attending the World Finals in October.
|Where do you see yourself in 5 years?|
I should have my Electrical Engineering degree, and also racing every race I can make it to.
Who are your biggest influences?
Jeff Jacobs, and Scott “hollywood” Watkins
Do you have any hobbies outside of motocross?
I like to snowboard, ride mountain bikes, and just hang out at the beach outside of racing.
|Who supports you in racing, and who would you like to thank?|
BURN Industries, Gasket Technology, Hydro-Turf, My Lucas Oil, Fly Racing, EHTeamRacing, Optima Racing, Canadian-freestyle.com, and also my dad for bringing me to all of these events!
