Long-time IRL driver, who is now back in his homeland, initially racing in stockcars. When Vitor couldn't find the funding to continue in the United States, he returned home to work in the family advertising and promotional company which is intertwined and does work for and with the country's government. His father's death in 2013 has meant his racing is virtually non-existent as he now has the business to focus on, but he was also involved in the - ultimately unsuccessful - organisation of a Indy Car race in his home city in 2015. Vitor is also co-founder of the Brazilian Automobile Drivers Association (ABPA) and has more involvement in that now as well.
