Join us at the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festivalís Concorso Speciale, sponsored by our friends and neighbors at Community Bank, NA. This event celebrates the oddball, the rare, and truly amazing of the automotive world. Why should strict trailer queens have all of the fun when the Concorso Speciale has a place for the car you are in love with. If itís special to you, it will be greatly appreciated by our tifosi. Polish and clean them, if you must, but at the Concorso Speciale you wonít be judged on your fastidiousness, but rather on just how cool your car is. We want the real thing and we want it in Watkins Glen on Friday, September 8, 2023.
Friday, September 8, 2023
Concorso Speciale celebrates all that is special in the automotive world. The only requirement is that you love your car and you want to share that passion with others. This is a judged event with a touch of humor and a huge appreciation for the odd, the rare, and the overly loved or obscure cars from all eras. Whether your car is in exquisite show condition, or has the patina of a barn find, if you love your car, chances are we can find a place in the Concorso Speciale to show it off to the real tifosi. Whether you think your car fits or not, SEND US A PHOTO! Entry confirmation will be sent via email if your ride is accepted.
