Dear friends of AUTOMOBILSPORT,
In our interview with Bill Warner, founder and organiser of the Amelia Island Concours, he summed up what made motorsport special in the 1960s and 1970s: ‘On the one hand, it was a very dangerous time. Too many deaths and cars that were almost criminal in their construction. On the other hand, there was diversity of design with exciting technologies such as V12s, flat 12s, V8s, turbines, monocoques, tube frames, early composites and limited aerodynamics. Moreover, the cars had style and a purity of design.’
Warner likes to celebrate that same diversity with his concours, paying tribute to motorsport and its heroes. And he makes good on his promise: no other concours event offers such a varied field of cars in such a relaxed environment.
