Lynton Jeffrey is our subject in this Open Wheel 101 interview presented by EMi! Lynton is one of the more fascinating and candid personalities in our sport. The Australian native not only had racing in his blood from a young age and is a talented pilot, he and his family have grown Vortex Racing Products into the undisputed leader in wing manufacture and design in the world. The business started from the ground up in both Australia and here in the United States.
In Part 1, Lynton talks about his childhood in Australia, his dreams of the U.S., his emotional first visit to Knoxville Raceway, getting a foothold in America with both his racing and his business, and how his innovations have altered the rule books!
