In the United States, motorsports draw an audience of over 32 million people, a figure that has not gone unnoticed by corporations seeking outlets for their advertising dollars and non-profits seeking a broader demographic. Back in 2009, Ari Rivera founded the Classic Car Club Miami, and he comes to the business with a pedigree. A champion international race car driver, he achieved an early notoriety, teaming up with PepsiCo (Pepsi Cola Latin America) in 1999 to resurrect the GT1 cars in Latin America, known in the US as the Trans Am series. Up to that point, the cars were considered “dinosaurs” but after winning championship after championship, Rivera and his undefeated team proved the critics wrong. These track victories caught the attention of South African owned brewery, SABMiller, and with their sponsorship Rivera went on to achieve consecutive international championships; the coveted “Pole and Win” situation, where cars are starting in first place as a result of best qualifying time and also finishing in first place. He’s had the privilege of being behind the wheel of some of the worlds’ most amazing cars, forming friendships and racing with the greatest drivers of his era.
In a career spanning over 30 years, there have been many victories, but perhaps none as sweet as his first professional championship in 1999 followed by his comeback race at HSR’s Classic 24-hour Daytona 500 in 2015 with a first place finish in his class. Not one to rest on his laurels, these days Rivera and his Classic Club Miami participate in auto racing events throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Mexico. He enjoys sharing his expertise coaching aspiring up and coming drivers as well as providing track side support for professional drivers. When not traveling the circuit or scouting new race opportunities particularly in Europe, Rivera can be found at his 21,000 square foot facility in the art driven Wynwood section of Miami, Florida. The location serves as official headquarters, an event venue for team sponsors and also is the site of Rivera’s successful vintage car business. With a lifelong passion for classic cars,Rivera specializes in investment grade, quality collectible cars, Porsche in particular, stemming back to his childhood days when his father longed for a Porsche but could only afford the less expensive Volkswagen. In addition to Porsche, he seeks out, buys, sells, collects and restores Ferrari and other fine European vintage cars inspired by their heritage, engineering and styling. But there’s nothing like the hunt for that one special collectable car no matter where in the world the search may take him.
Though all these vintage cars are prized by collectors, some remain more significant, such as the 1976 Porsche 930 turbo Carrera. The car was first launched in 1975 in Europe, but it wasn’t until 1976 that the car was made available in the United States. Rivera discovered the car in the backwoods of Tennessee, owned by an aging doctor who had a diverse collection of vintage cars on his 42-acre farm. It wasn’t until Rivera did further research that he discovered this Porschewas once owned by Elvis Presley, gifted to the doctor and had not been driven in 28 years. Another special classic in Rivera’s collection was the acquisition of the Porsche 962, March 84G, Group C-GTP, “Kreepy Krauly” sponsored by the namesake South African company. The Porsche 962 Group C class performance on the track continues to excel, ensuring the car’s place in motorsports history. The new owner vows to never part with her, and such is the case with passion. It is easy to be ruled with the heart and not the head when it is an object of desire, which is why collectors and car enthusiasts contract Rivera for his expertise and advice to ensure their investment and that of future potential buyers is focused on buying the best of the best.
