This is part one of a series of four articles introducing the race teams and their cars.
The countdown to the third annual Scottsdale Grand Prix has begun. The event celebrates the spirit of the Roaring ‘20s with a lavish outdoor Gatsby-themed party November 3 and a vintage race on the streets of Scottsdale on November 5.
