Classic cars visit Newport mansions
America's top car collectors and more than a dozen auto racing celebrities are coming to Newport from July 27 to 29, for the William K. Vanderbilt, Jr. Concours d'Elegance at the Newport Mansions.
The event will honor modern racing legends Dan Gurney and Sir Stirling Moss with Lifetime Achievement Awards for their contributions to motor sports.
The three-day celebration of all things automotive will include legendary drivers, competition cars, and grand classics. The festivities will benefit The Preservation Society of Newport County, one of the nation's largest private custodians of National Historic Landmarks, including The Breakers (1895), Marble House (1892) and Chateau-sur-Mer (1852), which will host the various Concours events.
The weekend is sponsored by Bentley, Breitling, Bentley Providence, Grenon's of Newport, Maybach, Azimut Yachts, Kimberly Pucci, Supercar Life, ABC6, and Fireman's Fund. The honorary chairman of the weekend is Debi Rahal.
