Motor Week Is Coming Into Focus

As the summer of 2019 winds to a close, we are getting more and more information about some great things coming in the fall.

One highlight appears to be the Audrain Concours and Motor Week event coming to Newport October 3-6th. We’ve been in contact with the team pulling this event together for years, literally. But the schedule is now starting to really come together.

In addition to the headline portions – the full “Pebble Beach” style concours at the Breakers mansion on Sunday October 6, the John Legend concert on Friday night October 4, “The Gathering” at Rough Point also on Friday October 4, and the “Tour d’Elegance” on Saturday morning October 5…they have also announced a host of seminars on various talks given by an array of luminaries in many fields, even beyond cars. They have added a pedal-car race for kids at Fort Adams on Saturday October 5, as well – similar to the Settrington Cup race held at Goodwood in England.

This one will come up quickly as we all get back into the fall routine so make sure to plan it into your calendars now. Our club’s 2019 NER Concours d’Elegance is also happening right in the middle of the event – Saturday October 5 – so please visit our event page to secure a judged spot or just a spectator parking spot to enjoy the show and all of the surrounding events. We’ll be on the extensive and beautiful lawn at Chateau-sur-Mer – one of the first and oldest Newport Mansions, built before there was a Bellevue Avenue – and rumor has it that we’ll be in close proximity to displays from McLaren and Koenigsegg.

Park with us right in the middle and enjoy all of the attractions.
