Happy 71st Birthday to Emerson Fittipaldi

       The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance Foundation would like to wish double Formula 1 World Champion and two-time Indy 500 winner, Emerson Fittipaldi, a happy 71st birthday!

    Emerson Fittipaldi will serve as the official honoree for the 23rd annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance held March 9-11, 2018.

    "In a century just five racers have won both the Formula 1 World Championship and the Indy 500," said Warner. "We've had five Indy 500 winners and two World Champions as Amelia Honorees, but 'Emmo' is the first who has scored motorsport's ultimate 'double'. Having Emerson as our 2018 honoree is an unprecedented honor for The Amelia."
