A HOLIDAY GIFT FROM THE AMELIA ISLAND CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE
Jacksonville, FL - The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance has earned the label “the racers’ concours.” We confess: guilty as charged. Competition cars of all stripes have been (ahem) disproportionally represented on Amelia’s field since 1996. All-star racers from Formula 1, Le Mans, Can-Am, NASCAR, Indy Car and other major racing series have served as Amelia Honorary Chairmen. We love racers, racing and racing cars. (The Amelia’s founder and Chairman is a long time racer and member of the prestigious Road Racing Drivers Club. It’s in our blood.)
As the end of the 2016 calendar and the 22nd annual Amelia Concours d’Elegance approach (March 10-11-12, 2017) we thought it would be appropriate to send you a little gift; some fresh racer’s wallpaper, now that the holidays are upon us.
The photos were shot at the December tests for the Rolex 24 at Daytona by our founder and Chairman -- and Road & Track staff photographer -- on the 25th anniversary of Rolex sponsorship for the 24 Hours of Daytona. Be sure to download as many as you like and share the link with family and friends!
All of us at The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance would like to wish you and yours a very blessed and merry holiday season. Without the 600 plus volunteers, dozens of gracious sponsors, hundreds of entrants, and the tens of thousands of attendees, we simply wouldn’t exist. We are grateful for each and every one of you!
