What makes them haute:

Castroneves has driven and danced his way into the hearts of people around the world. As the only active driver to have earned the distinction of being a three-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 and the only racecar driver ever to become a “Dancing with the Stars” Champion, the Fort Lauderdale resident was also a Haute Living Miami cover star in 2009. In 2010, Castroneves also released a popular book about his life entitled Victory Road – The Ride of My Life, which chronicled his rise to stardom and how he handled his high-profile tax case and triumphant return to racing. Recently, Castroneves spearheaded the Brazil Foundation’s annual Gala at the W South Beach Hotel and Residences.
