Ted Field


Ted Field

"'Ted Field" was born Frederick W. Field in Chicago, Illinois. He is the heir to the Marshall Field fortune.

Ted Fields is a media mogul/entrepreneur, well known by motor racing enthusiasts for being the boss of Interscope Racing, a successful team that fielded cars in many different categories including Indy, CanAm, Sportscars and even F1. Danny Ongais was the main pilot of the team, Ted Field himself occasionally took the wheel in some occasions including at 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Interscope Racing started off entering Ongais in Formula 5000 in 1975, graduating to USAC racing and the Indianapolis 500 in Parnelli chassis. Fields also funded Ongais to make occasional Formula One outings in a Penske. Fields also backed the construction in 1980 of an Interscope chassis designed by Roman Slobodinskij for the Indianapolis 500. This was intended to take a turbocharged six-cylinder Porsche engine (similar to the one Ongais and Fields were using in their Porsche 935) but a dispute with USAC over turbo boost meant the programme was abandoned.

Fields then founded Interscope Communications in 1982, which produced more than 50 major films. Fields is Interscope Records and Interscope Films. In 1990, he co-founded Interscope Records. He is currently Chairman and CEO of Radar Pictures.

He is currently living in Los Angeles, California.
