It was always clear to Camilo that in order to become a successful race car diver he had to understand all the mechanical aspects of karts and racing cars. So in the year 2000, with his father Alberto approval, he decided to enrol in the Jim Russell Racing School (California, USA). There he finished the Mechanics Training Program (MTP) and raced in the Jim Russell Championship series. He achieved great results and completed his studies with excellence.

During the years finding sponsorship to continue with his racing career became ever more difficult. So, Camilo decided to go to Europe, been part of the German Formula 3 with the CCT (Competition Car Technology) from Alexander Buerger.

Then after going to work in high level racing, thanks Fulvio Maria Ballabio helped him get connected with the industries main players, in turn he was offered a job at Team Coloni (Passignano Sul Trasimeno, Italy). He worked for Coloni for two years, after he decided to move to team Trident Racing (Novara, Italy). In 2010 Camilo was part of Mr. André Herck's GP2 Team, DPR.

Since then Camilo has built a name for himself within the paddock in Europe. Drivers, engineers and team owners have heard about his great skills for racing and for getting the cars to the pole position.

Camilo is very thankful about that special and unique opportunity that Mr. André Herck gave him. He is very eager however to have the opportunity to get behind the wheel again hopefully for on a more permanent position and truly take advantage of his exceptional skills as a race car driver.

In 2011 Camilo had the opportunity to get behind the wheel. He test drove in Magione a BMW Superstars race car (CAAL racing team) and also had the opportunity drive it in a regional race. Camilo won the race! Then he raced the 100 Miles of Magione in the same BMW Superstars race car and demonstrated that was able to compete for the victory. Teams noticed Camilo's abilities and the Swiss Team asked him to test drive their Maserati Quattro Porte. Evidently Camilo did the best times and the team was very impressed with his technical knowledge.
