Infiniti Launches Inaugural 'Inspired Performance' Award at Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours  - Also Sponsors On-site Media Center and Infiniti Pavilion Display -

True to its dedication to providing vehicles with Inspired Performance, Infiniti has been announced as the inaugural sponsor of the Infiniti 'Inspired Performance' Award at the 2012 Hilton Head Island Concours d'Elegance, one of four events that make up the unique Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival. More than 150 classic vehicles are expected for the Concours, which is held annually under the spreading oaks and flowing Spanish moss on scenic Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

The Infiniti 'Inspired Performance' Award, selected by credentialed media for the vehicle that inspires them most through its design, engineering and style, will be presented on Nov. 4th at the Concours. Infiniti is also the media sponsor for the Festival and Concours. In addition, an Infiniti Pavilion will showcase a selection of Infiniti vehicles and local retailer Infiniti of Hilton Head will provide Infiniti vehicles for a consumer ride and drive.

'Infiniti has long had a major presence at America's most prestigious Concours events as an exhibitor and sponsor, so we are pleased to expand this tradition to the Hilton Head Island event,' said Infiniti Vice President Ben Poore. 'With the categories of eligible vehicles ranging from classics and sports cars to motorcycles and American performance cars, we predict it will be very difficult to select just one 'inspired' vehicle for this special award.'

'We are pleased to welcome Infiniti as our Official Media Partner. The Hilton Head event is quickly growing on the national Concours stage and we look forward to Infiniti's partnership in hosting national and international media at our world class event,' said Carolyn Vanagle, president, Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d'Elegance.

Among the 2013 Infiniti vehicles on display at the Infiniti Pavilion will be the all-new 7-passenger Infiniti JX luxury crossover with its innovative Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) system technology and multi-mode middle seat design that provides entry to the 3rd row without removing a 2nd row child seat.
