Georgios Davakos is a Greek sim-racer who currently drives for Centurion Racing in the GPVWC Supercup. He is also the owner of Water Blue Racing. He has finished on the podium three times throughout his Supercup career, the last coming at the Belgian Grand Prix in 2011.

Early Sim-Racing Career

Georgios found a passion for motor racing in a very young and and it developed into a passion for sim-racing when he was firstly introduced to Grand Turismo 3 for the Playstation 2.

He started his competitive sim-racing career in a league called American F3000 Grand Prix Championship driving the Formula 3000 from Race 07, a game that was published by Simbin. Despite that he was thrown in to a very competitive field, Georgios managed to score a couple of points and gain a lot of experience that would be carried over to the next league he joined, Formula Pro World Championship. 2009 would turn out to be a year to gain experience and fine tune all acquired knowledge from American F3000 Grand Prix Championship to Formula Pro World Championship.

Through out 2010 and 2011, Georgios would find himself joining a countless amount of leagues to learn and improve him driving. He signed up for touring car leagues like the RaceDepartment Touring Car Championship, Open Wheel leagues such as Formula Pro World Championship (season 3,4,5), GPVWC Supercup, FSR World Trophy and Sim Racing Pro International Formula Masters. He did also sign up for endurance and GT leagues such as the RaceDepartment Le Mans series and the RaceDepartment GT Series.

The goal for the young Greek was not to win championships or make a name for himself, it was all about racing against other drivers and learning as much as he possibly could about how to improve his pace.

2012

After three years of competitive sim-racing, Georgios started to see some improvements in his pace. He was faster, more consistent and knew a lot more about setting up a car then he had ever known but his luck was not to be found as he was constantly facing technical issue.

He competed in a four races for his own Water Blue Racing in 2012 before starting the two races for Woods Racing at the end of the season. He best finish of the season was fifth in Korea.

2013

Georgios signed on with Centurion Racing for the 2013. Davakos originally agreed to join the team as they sought a Superleague berth. The team was unsuccessful but was granted a place on the Supercup grid. Davakos chose to remain with the team and will partner Ihab Abbas.
