Urgent! This weekend's Amelia Island Concours moves to Saturday
For the second year in a row, the Florida event has been forced to move its concours forward a day due to forecast rain – and the RM Sotheby's sale will move to Friday
The Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in Florida has been moved to Saturday March 10 due to forecasts of bad weather on the Sunday.
RM Sotheby's Amelia Island sale will move from the Saturday to Friday March 9.
The event team has released this statement:
'Even in the best case scenario, the forecast for Sunday’s scheduled Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance includes rain and lots of it. With a strong chance of heavy precipitation forecast for Sunday and a sunshine-filled Saturday in the mix, The Amelia Concours team has moved Sunday’s award-winning Concours to Saturday.
'The Concours show will now coincide with Saturday’s Cars & Coffee at the Concours presented by Heacock Classic Insurance.'
The new schedule is as follows:
- Saturday, March 10, Cars & Coffee at the Concours 9am until 5pm
- Saturday, March 10, Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance 9:30am until 5pm
- Other important changes include moving Saturday’s Drivers of the IMSA Prototypes Seminar to Sunday at 10:30am in the Talbot Ballroom, The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island
- Saturday evening’s Gala is unchanged
- RM Sotheby’s Auction will move to Friday March 9 at 3pm
However, the highlights of the concours are just the same, with a star appearance by Emerson Fittipaldi, who is the honoree this year, along with celebrations of 60 Years of NART and the Porsche Carrera.
There will be special features for Auburn, IMSA GTP, Martini Racing, Jaguar E-type and the Ferrari Daytona, and – most excitingly for AutoClassics – the appearance of the actual Bullitt film Mustang, six cars from John Campion's stunning Martini Lancia collection, and the just-restored Shelby Lonestar.
