Who is this guy?
Emerson Fittipaldi is an icon and is known to be one of the greatest drivers in the auto sport industry, especially in Formula One™. The Brazilian won both the Formula One World Championship and the Indianapolis 500 twice each, and the CART championship once, making him a trailblazer in more ways than one.
Fittipaldi was born into racing; it was running through his veins before he even took an interest in the sport. Fittipaldi is the younger brother of former Formula One driver and team owner, Wilson Fittipaldi. Not to mention, he is the uncle of former CART, Formula One and NASCAR driver Christian Fittipaldi –Yeesh!
At the age of 50, he was still with Champ Cars in 1996 when an injury at the Michigan International Speedway ended his career. Fittipaldi did not return to the series as a driver after the injury, but rather he made a return as a team owner of Champ Cars.
In 2001, he was rightfully inducted in the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. Today, you can keep up with this racing icon via his personal twitter or Facebook account, and in person at Circuit of The Americas™ on Oct. 31! Also, he is the chairman of Motorsports.com and writes a monthly blog column on the official website of McLaren.
