GMT94 HISTORY

Independant team from its begining, the structure of the GMT94 has evolved under the responsibility of Christophe Guyot. As a rider until 2004, Christophe has managed to surround himself with a team made up of professionals and volunteers. Beyond competition, the GMT94 follows a second great objective: to turn racing into a tool for the development of new projects in favor of bikers and young people


THE RACE TEAM

The team has been built around a hard core made up of Christophe Guyot, Michel Guerre, Brigitte Guyot, Benoît Poupardin and Sébastien Carré. The GMT94 team is composed of men and women, all volunteers, who give most of their time to this exceptional human adventure. The GMT94 has not followed a common, typical development scheme. In the beginning the team was 100% private and then was able to develop itself with the arrival of Yamaha France as a partner in 2003. It is today the official Yamaha Racing team in Endurance World Championship.

THE NUMBER 94

Christophe Guyot has been running the number 94 since his first race in 1989 on a Yamaha 350 RDLC. This number represents

his commitment to the Val de Marne department, the city of Ivry-sur-Seine and his involvement in social activism. One of the aims of the 94 team is to promote the role of social shield represented by the Departmental Council of Val de Marne.

Lycée Jacques Brel in Choisy-le-Roi, Collège Jean Perrin in Kremlin-Bicêtre, Collège Rosa Parks and Lycée Professionnel Val de Bièvre in Gentilly, Collège Molière or Lycée Fernand Léger in Ivry-sur-Seine are some of the schools that Christophe Guyot has visited on numerous occasions. Road safety is the focus of those visits, but they always lead to internships in the GMT94 workshop for young people from Val de Marne. Engineering schools from Val de Marne also call on GMT94 to open internships to students from ESTACA, IPSA or EPITA. Every year, GMT94 requests the help of the FFM to organise activities geared towards the younger generation. Eric Dieudonné, in charge of the educational programs in the Ile-de-France region and his team supply minibikes for kids aged between 6 and 14 during the Solidarity Days celebration in Ivry-sur-Seine.

In 1998 and 1999, two of the GMT94 mechanics were hired through a youth employment program implemented in 1997 by the

Val de Marne Departmental Council. 15 years later, their uninterrupted employment within the team shows that these jobs could

last in the long run well beyond the five-year sponsored period. Over 40 volunteers also work for GMT94 at the races, during the “Thrill Days” held at circuit Carole, or during riding-school days hosted by Christophe Guyot. Many contribute to the educational activities of GMT94, including Jude Asaph (Vincennes), Jean Pierre Leblanc or Jean Pascal Didier (Ivry) who always make themselves available when Christophe Guyot’s schedule does not allow him to visit a school, trade show or racetrack.

Numerous companies from the Val de Marnes department are partners under the “94” banner. Some of them have been with us

since the beginning: Grenier printing house (Gentilly) prints our documents, Quorum (L’Hay les Roses) handles our graphic design needs and Fortuné (St Maur) makes our upholstery.

 

WORKING WITH HIGH SCHOOLS

Hosting trainees, working in the classroom, assisting students orientation, welcoming people visiting bike shows, fairs or exhibitions: their activities are very varied.


SPONSORING THE "ATTITUDE PREVENTION" TRACK

As part of the partnership with ATTITUDE PREVENTION (an association of French insurers), Christophe GUYOT is the sponsor of the CRS / ATTITUDE PREVENTION Road Trail, a national initiation to driving two-wheelers and risk prevention road.

 

PARTNERSHIP WITH THE " MUTUELLE DES MOTARDS"

Patrick Jacquot, Chairman of the Mutuelle des Motards, and Christophe Guyot, have submitted a file called " Open les circuits ". The FFM has taken it over which offers bikers many Open Days. The Mutuelle des Motards and the GMT94 will keep on working in this direction in 2016 to extend practice to everybody.

 

"JOURNEES FRISSONS " (thrill days)

Since their creation, the GMT94 has elaborated a true organization to give an ever wider public the opportunity to experience some rare moments. These activities are wholly prepared by the racing team, the team manager, the mechanics, the riders as well as the volunteers. One of the greatest moments remains the contact between the fans of motorsport who are offered a unique opportunity to meet the actors of the race. For each of the participants, the two-up sessions may last just a few minutes but every of them have confessed it is a moment they'll never forget.

 

JOURNEE DES SOLIDARITES (Solidarity Days)

Every year since it has been in existence, upon the initiative of the Val-de-Marne Conceal Département, the GMT94 together with numerous other associations take part in the preparation and animation of the day in favor of the Ivry citizens in difficulty before the Christmas period.
