Now lives in Arizona, where he does racing driver instructing and runs an events management company. Ted, who hasn't raced since he left CART in 1992, got his break in motorsport from an unusual but very famous source - his British-born mother used to be the business manager for film legend James Stewart and it was he who bought Ted his first racing car - a Super Vee - back in 1983. Prappas' father was Greek and so Ted - short for Theodore - raced with the flags of Greece, Britain and America emblazoned on his helmet. Prappas was a race winner in both Formula Atlantic and the American Racing Series.
