| This year's Honored Guest will be Sir Stirling Moss... No other venue in the U.S. has three days of on-track racing sandwiching a prestigious concours event – all on the same property. Since 1983, the East Coast's premier vintage racing event has been the Historic Festival and its companion 'Sunday in the Park Concours' (Sept. 2). With its famous free paddock access for all fans, Historic Festival 30 will be a feast for the senses: More than 300 vintage race cars will fill the grounds, Sir Stirling will be here for you to visit with, the Swap Meet in the Sunoco B Paddock will be packed, the Midway is always alive with activities – and the racing on the track is non-stop from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Monday. Also, there will be a very exciting Formula 1 Race Group on Saturday and Monday, thanks to Historic Grand Prix (HGP), the finest vintage racing organization for 1966 - 1983 F1 machinery. Historic Festival 30... There's nothing like it anywhere else!

| Sir Stirling Moss Returns To The Amelia ConcoursSir Stirling Moss defined the image of a professional racing driver. By the time premature retirement was forced upon him by a racing accident at Goodwood in 1962, his name meant 'racing driver'. He was every English schoolboy's hero and the inheritor of grand master and Mercedes-Benz teammate Juan Fangio's orb, scepter and crown. |
In 1996 Sir Stirling was the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance first Honorary Chairman. The cover of 'The Amelia's' 1996 collector-grade program depict....
| THE UNDERDOG UPSET CHARLES DRESSING'S RETELLING OF SEBRING'S 1983 RACEAmericans love underdogs but hate losers. And we really love upsets because they turn reality inside out and generally make the mighty look weak.|
So when anyone demands a prediction, I try to hide because I always remember some races that didn't quite go the way the experts reckoned: the 1954 Sebring 12 Hours, 1955 Monaco Grand Prix, the start of the 1958 Race of Two Worlds at Monza (not the whole race, but the start sure was a great moment for sports car types).
And then … there was the....

However, on the 18th of September, there would be one last race in which the mighty Silver Arrows would be gunning....|
