Guido’s career as a team manager has already started (in 2014 he had won the UIM World Endurance circuit with the the russian New Star Team) , when in 2015 he received an invitation from the Sheikh of Abu Dhabi, HH. Dr. Sheick Sultan Bin Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to become the manager of the Inshore teams of the Abu Dhabi Team – which take part at the world championships F.1 and F.2 – succeeding Mr Scott Gillman.
From that day, he moved with his family to the United Arab Emirates and reorganized the Abu Dhabi Team, taking care of the Inshore teams of F. 1 (in the meantime named World Championship FH2O) and of F.2. He brought with him the Dac team: Attilio Donzelli, Giacomino Curti, his cousin Denis and revolutionized the management of the team, exalting the talents of the already established drivers and making young riders grow, including some new drivers from the United Arab Emirates.
Regarding the conquered world titles, his road map is impressive, similar to when he was the driver: the Abu Dhabi Team won four Team World Championships F. 1 (2015, 1016 2018 and 2019), two world driver’s title F 2 in 2017 and in 2019, September, both with Rashed al Qemzi (2019 World Champion with one round to spare and in the same time World Champion in F. 4) and three world driver’s title F.1: in 2017 with Alex Carella and in 2018 and 2019 with Shaun Torrente.
