The 26th annual Amelia Island event comes alive next weekend

Postponed from its usual early March date due to the pandemic, organizers said it has been an interesting year after last year’s concours was held just days before so much of the world went into lock-down in March 2020.

“No doubt about that,” concours founder and chairman Bill Warner admits as they waited to see how the pandemic would work itself out. And even with more and more people vaccinated and all the safety measures in place at this year’s event, people will experience a few changes at what will still be a grand event.

Expect a myriad variety of classics, race cars, motorcycles and some intriguing vehicles, plus Lyn St. James, the concours’ first woman honoree with a serious racing pedigree as well as much more. And he expects lots of fans to show up, with “plenty of room for social distancing.”
