The 4 Events of The Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance

The annual Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance is one of the most highly anticipated annual events in our area, and packs four awesome events into one week!  We thought the event may be interrupted by the severe hurricane that blew in along the East coast but, thankfully, everything is happening according to plan.

The Motoring Festival began on October 26, 2012 with the first of four events; The Savannah Speed Classic.  Held on Hutchinson Island in Savannah, GA, this event brings back Savannah’s racing heritage.  The Speed Classic is a unique race track experience offering an intimate look at the inner workings of racing!  With features such as hot lap rides and pit access, you’ll be strapped in at full throttle, up close and personal.

The second event, Motoring Midway, will be here in Hilton Head this weekend, November 3-4, 2012.  This fun event is unique to Hilton Head Island and offers an eclectic mix of motoring heritage and technology.  Exhibits planned for this year include: Life in the Service, On the Water, Two Wheels, Road to the Future and automotive-themed children’s activities.

The most nostalgic day of the Festival is CarClub Jamboree, is on November 3. With car clubs traveling from throughout the U.S, an eclectic mix of over 150 cars, including muscle cars, hot rods and European sports cars, a little bit of everyone’s story will be told!

Concours d’Elegance, the main event of the Festival, features over 150 classic vehicles competing for the coveted title of Best of Show, the Concours offers that “wow factor”!  This part of the festival will be on November 4.

Parking (including designated space for handicap parking) is available on-site at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn for $10 per car and complimentary off-site/remote parking is available at the Hilton Head Island Public School complex with a shuttle to the event site.

You can purchase tickets online or at the gate and there are weekend and VIP packages available.  Bring the entire family and remember that kids 12 and under get in for free!

This is just one of the annual events here in Hilton Head Island that keep visitors and new residents flocking here all throughout the year.  Another reason just might be that the weather is still pushing 70 degrees the first weekend of November!

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend for the Motoring Festival in HHI, will you be there?
