Drivers

Ted Giovanis
Driver/Team Owner

Giovanis started his racing career in 1991 in a variety of amateur series. After years of following professional racing, he decided to leave amateur racing behind and to start building a professional team to race in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge (IMPC), starting in the 2006 season. Since his start in the IMPC, Giovanis has continued to develop his driving abilities and has proven he is more than just a gentleman driver. 

2018 saw Giovanis join Ferrari Challenge (FC) North America (NA) competition in the Coppa Shell Am class, scoring second and third place finishes at the World Finals at the Monza Eni Circuit.

In addition to the IMPC and FC NA, Giovanis takes his love of driving and his never ending desire to build his driving skills to various track events throughout the year including the David Murry Track Days, Group 52, and the Porsche Sport Driving School as well as private track days in which he tests his skills with some of his race cars and personal vehicles including various Ferraris, Porsches and BMWs.

When off the track, Giovanis is a highly recognized and well-known individual in the health care industry. Over the past several decades, he has built several businesses in the health policy, regulatory consultancy, and advocacy arenas. The broad policy experiences, expertise, and techniques applied by the principals of his firms have allowed them to develop specialized reimbursement strategies and techniques with the result of increasing payments to hospitals nationwide.
