Green Concours d'Elegance

June 4, 2010 10:08:00 PM PDT
This event draws the pinnacle of classic automobiles, yauchts and motorcycles. This year, Founders and co-chairs Bruce and Genia Wennerstrom will include an extraordinary new attraction, a three-day regatta of classic former America's Cup 12-Meter yachts!

Held in association with the 12-M Yacht Development Foundation, these magnificent craft will be competing for the Greenwich Concours Cup.

Concours visitors will be able to view the yachts up close, and there will also be limited opportunities to sail on them.

The cars exhibited include many of the pre-WWI brass-era, the grand classics of the late 1920s and '30s, and such storied marques as Rolls-Royce, Marmon, Pierce Arrow, Lagonda, Cord, Auburn, Packard, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati; and post-WWII cars with big fins, and outsized engines.

There will be sports and competition cars exhibited each day, including two historic Indy 500 race cars, with a special circle of "Contemporary Supercars." Classic motorcycles will also be on display.

The event takes place at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park, Greenwich on Saturday June 5 and Sunday June 6 from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
