As 47-year-old race car driver Helio Castroneves chases a record-breaking fifth Indy 500 win, he’s relying on his American Coach RV to help him and his team get ready for race day.
An American Eagle motorhome from American Coach has been part of Castroneves’ racing life since 2015, as per a press release.
“At the track, my American Coach is my home,” says Castroneves. “It’s where I relax before races and where my family makes their home base when they come to the track. My American Eagle is designed just the way I like it and has everything I need to prepare for race day.”
Castroneves is a two-time American Coach owner and worked closely with the American Coach team to tailor the RV to meet his specific needs. On the exterior, Castroneves’ motorhome boasts a customized finish of glossy black with bold red accents.
On the interior, he moved the location of the kitchen and specified white cabinetry for a fresh, contemporary look. The rest of the coach features modern, teak-style cabinetry. For his daughter and her friends, Castroneves wanted ultra-comfortable custom bunk beds so each bunk has its own TV and an electric shade that can be lowered for privacy.
Other luxury amenities include massaging captain’s chairs in the cab; heated tile flooring throughout; a full-size, residential stainless-steel refrigerator and special-order quartz countertops in the kitchen; 1½ baths; and a master suite with a king-sized bed, full bath with his-and-her vanities, walk-in waterfall shower, wardrobe storage, and a stacked washer and dryer conveniently concealed in a closet.
The American Coach brand is part of REV Recreation Group, Inc., a manufacturer of Class A motorhomes, and a subsidiary of REV Group, Inc.
