Greenwich Concours de Sport celebrates cars from and inspired by motorsports
Rooted in the Amelia Concours d’Elegance tradition of naming two Best of Show winners, one from the world of motorsports and another chosen for its pure elegance, Saturday’s Greenwich Concours de Sport is curated to complement Sunday’s traditional Concours d’Elegance with a celebration of cars from and inspired by the world of motorsports. This exciting new event introduces vehicles to the show-field lawns, including standouts from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, which are rarely celebrated on the grand stage of world-class concours.
Innovative Concours de Sport car classes include Radwood Street Cars Built for the Track, a celebration of homologation specials from the 1980s and 1990s. Porsche fans will enjoy the wild builds and sleek customizations of Porsche Outlaws. Rarely seen Japanese domestic sports cars are represented in the JDM Performance class and will be joined by a fabulous collection of Japanese motorcycles, including some of the fastest street bikes ever made. All eight generations of the Corvette will be represented in Corvette: America’s Sports Car, and we will recognize Carroll Shelby’s 100th birthday with the Carroll Shelby Centenary class.
Tomorrow’s Concours de Sport is also a celebration of the local community, with three classes of vehicles specifically chosen from local collectors. Cars of Greenwich Avenue highlights eight of the most exciting vehicles from Greenwich, Connecticut, and surrounding towns. Curated in partnership with the leadership team of Greenwich Cars & Coffee, this class is a tribute to the beautiful seacoast town and the wonderful people who call it home. In addition, Racing Legends features cars that have raced at the historic Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut. Finally, Cars of Garage + Social is a featured class of vehicles selected from the collections of Bedford Hills, New York, Hagerty Garage + Social members.
Families will delight in the newly renamed Future Drivers Club featuring fun and educational activities for younger enthusiasts. Students between the ages of 8 and 14 will have the opportunity to participate in Hagerty Youth Judging. The young judges are guided through the show field as a group to pre-selected Concours de Sport vehicles and are provided with the opportunity to interact with owners and learn details, history, and fun facts about each of these entries.
