Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d'Elegance
Savannah Speed Classic and Concours d'Elegance
Visitors will find everything from the latest European performance cars to museum-quality vintage vehicles at this two-weekend automobile celebration. Kicking things off is the Savannah Speed Classic, running from Friday, October 25 through Sunday, October 27 on Hutchinson Island, the birthplace of Grand Prix racing in America. The Classic includes races for everything from Formula 1 cars to vintage automobiles, and also offers spectators the chance to drive shotgun on a hot lap around the track. The following weekend, the action moves to Hilton Head Island for the Concours d'Elegance and Car Club Jamboree. Taking place on Saturday, November 2, this year's Car Club Jamboree pays tribute to Italian marques, with clubs from across the country showing off their prize Ferraris, Alfa Romeos and more. Sunday's Concours d'Elegance, in addition to showcasing its usual assortment of vintage cars, also celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Corvette and the 110th anniversary of Harley Davidson. Special exhibits include "Life on the Beach," a collection of woodies, scooters, dune buggies and other shore staples, as well as a one-time display featuring vehicles that could have been part of the Great Gatsby's fleet. Tickets range from $13 to $100 depending on the package and day. Kids under 12 are admitted for free.
