Destined for success

Determined to make it to the upper echelons in the world of motorsports, JM Correa is in the process of following in the footsteps of champions and household names around the world. One of North America’s up and coming talents, Correa has been tearing up the track garnering race wins, podiums and awards along the way. Committed to success, JM Correa moved away from friends and families as he looks to make a career in motorsports. Living in Europe and in the Formula One ladder program, Correa is on the verge of taking the American flag to the top once again.

On Track

As one of the hungriest drivers in the GP3 Series program, Correa turned heads last year as he took part in the final three events on the 2017 calendar. With multiple race wins and podium results to his name in both the German and Italian F4 programs, Correa’s on track finishes and consistent growth and experience has helped elevate the now Jenzer Motorsports driver to a championship contender in the GP3 Series. With success competing at some of the premier racing circuits around the world, the GP3 Series is a stepping stone to the Formula One World Championship – the ultimate goal for Correa. With the goal of motorsports stardom all while making his supporters and partners proud, JM Correa is even more comfortable behind the wheel than he is behind the camera. While in the battle of fierce competition, the American/Ecuadorian attacks his fellow competitors from when the lights go out to the drop of the checkered flag, leaving it all out on the track with no regrets.

Outside the car

From the minute JM wakes, he focuses on what is needed to be successful in a race car. Passionate about the sport, he is understanding that the hardest preparation work about being a motorsports champion comes from outside the race car. Focused on physical fitness, conditioning and mental preparation, JM is constantly pushing himself above and beyond the normal daily limits.More important than on track results is JM’s off track presence; Correa is prototypical of the new breed of racer: a person as comfortable dealing with people as he is driving at the limit. His personality, effort and appeal are second to none and they can attract the exposure needed to provide supporting companies the benefits they deserve. With the help of his media representative, manager, team and family support, Correa provides the brand awareness that any company would be happy to be associated with and his activeness on social media provides an in-depth look of his personal and racing life while interacting with partners, fans and the motorsports community.
