MIAMI, Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Widely considered to be one of the brightest stars in motorsports, three-time Indianapolis 500 Champion Helio Castroneves has joined to become one of the forty Founding Members of The Concours Club, the world's premiere invitation-only automotive country club. Accepting his invite as a Founding Member of the club, Castroneves' stamp of approval solidifies the club's reputation as a haven for professionals, enthusiasts and collectors alike to celebrate and collaborate within a carefully curated environment. The Concours Club is located within Miami's Opa-Locka Executive Airport and offers a resort setting to its members that include driving circuits, training and storage opportunities, as well as all of the amenities of a five-star resort.
"As a professional racer, I've always envisioned a place where racing, collecting and luxury intersect in the right environment," said Castroneves. "This dream is finally a reality with the arrival of The Concours Club and I am thrilled and honored to become a Founding Member of this prestigious club."
Sure to lend appeal to both domestic and international members with his professional record, Castroneves is also very well known locally, as the Brazilian driving star has called Miami his home for many years. While Helio is currently in his 19th professional season racing for Roger Penske's legendary team, his accomplishments are unmatched. From his success at Indianapolis to his win on the hugely popular ABC competition "Dancing with the Stars," Castroneves is a perfect fit as a Founding Member of the club.
"Our founding membership has been carefully selected to reflect what we regard as the cornerstone and ethos of our club for many years to come," said Neil Gehani managing partner of The Concours Club. "We are elated that Helio has joined our exclusive membership group of forty founders and know he will bring many years of wisdom and expertise to the club. We proudly welcome him to the family," said Gehani.
THE CONCOURS CLUB broke ground in 2017 and has already established itself as the ultimate "arrive and drive" experience within minutes of Miami's major touchpoints. Located within Miami's Opa-Locka Executive Airport, the club boasts multiple driving circuits within a community of highly trained and like-minded members and colleagues, bound by a common affinity for automotive competition, collaboration and appreciation.
