The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance is set for March 7-9 at the Ritz Carlton and Amelia Island Golf Club. This year’s featured car is the McLaren which celebrates its 50th anniversary. This event has grown to be one of the best in America rivaling the west coast version at Pebble Beach. We always enjoy the guests for this event as they are all car enthusiasts and there is a lot of “car talk” thru out the weekend. There are auctions Friday and Saturday, test drives, dinners, and a variety of car related opportunities. On Friday morning a select group of entrants begins a tour of the Island ending in downtown Fernandina Beach with Centre Street closed off to showcase 30 or more of these fabulous vehicles from the larger group that will be shown at the event on Sunday. Sunday morning all the cars will be on display at the Amelia Island Golf Club, spread across two fairways. We are once again full for this event and it seems to be booked earlier each year. Repeat guests are fun and we enjoy hearing their stories of how they became car “nuts” as they call themselves. The cars are fantastic since it is by invitation only that a car can be part of this event. The event is also a large contributor to charities and that provides another incentive for people to attend and participate since it helps give back to those in need. If you aren’t booked for this year….try to get scheduled to be apart of next year’s festivities where another vehicle brand will be honored and more great antique and specialty cars will be on display. Or if you live near enough, you should still be able to get tickets for this year’s event. For more information on the event visit www.ameliaconcours.org.
