| For more than 100 years, Pinehurst has crowned champions in some of the most prestigious events in the world. The U.S. Open Championship. The PGA Championship. The Ryder Cup. Now a new champion will be named on the storied links, this time for 'Best in Show' for automobiles at the Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance on Sunday, May 5, 2013.
The Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance will combine the world-class amenities of Pinehurst Resort, special experiences for all attendees, some of the greatest vehicles ever created and an opportunity to benefit and honor the men and women of the military from nearby Fort Bragg, NC.
Four days of events are planned for the Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance starting on Thursday, May 2nd with an Aerodrome Party at nearby Moore County Regional Airport. On Friday, May 3rd, many of the concours-participating vehicles will take part in a road rally, with plans being finalized with Fort Bragg for a special route from Pinehurst to the base. A collector car auction will be held on Saturday, May 4th, as well as a 'Heroes' Gala event that evening at Pinehurst Resort. The inaugural Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance, featuring more than 150 of the most historic automobiles and motorcycles from around the world, including significant military vehicles, takes place on Sunday, May 5th.
The Pinehurst Concours d'Elegance was created and developed by Dean Kessel, an avid auto enthusiast and 20-plus year motorsports marketing veteran. Kessel and his team of highly regarded and experienced automotive and motorsports staff, as well as an extremely knowledgeable advisory board, have spent nearly two years cultivating this initiative. The overall goal is to offer an experience at the iconic resort of Pinehurst to show-goers, entrants and corporate partners that will become a 'must-attend' for all automotive enthusiasts.
