September Drive and Dine: Lime Rock Historic Festival 34

Join us on September’s Drive to Lime Rock Park for Sunday in the Park and Historic Festival 34; then finish the day with a optional meal at the Black Rabbit Bar and Grille.  Day starts at 7:45 am, ends at 4:30… or later if you join us for dinner.

This event will start at (Exit 12 of I-90) Park and Ride on Route 9 south at 7:45AM leaving at 8:00AM.  We will head south to Lime Rock Park for Sunday in the Park Concours and Gathering of the Marques.  (A special Porsche area will be reserved.)  This is a spectacular show as there will be over 1000, yes I said, 1000 cars on the track for display.

Wayne Carini will be the Honored Collector for Historic Festival 34 Presented by the Prestige Family of Fine Cars,He is the charismatic host of one of the most popular cable TV shows in America, the HD-only “Chasing Classic Cars” on Discovery Channel-owned Velocity.

Wayne Carini is not only a widely recognized TV personality, but a highly regarded restorer; a pre-eminent Ferrari expert; a much sought-after concours judge; and owner of F40 Motorsports (buys and sells vintage and classic automobiles), Continental Auto, Ltd. (high-end and exotic automobile repair and bodywork), and Carini Carozzeria (restoration shop where Wayne spends much of his time). Carini Consulting advises and manages collections for clients around the world.

Wayne’s personal car collection has never been seen publicly, but he enthusiastically welcomed the opportunity to bring a half-dozen of his favorite cars, a half-dozen motorcycles, and a very special “hauler-and-racecar” combo to Lime Rock Park for the Festival when he accepted Sunday in the Park Concours organizer Kent Bain’s offer to be the Honored Collector.

For Historic Festival 34, the Honored Guests are none other than John Morton and Pete Brock.  Among Brock’s numerous accomplishments is, of course, his designing the Daytona Cobra Coupe and founding his wildly successful Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE)… for which Morton was asked to drive and together, they won prodigiously between 1969 and 1972 in BRE Datsuns in C-Production and 2.5-liter Trans-Am. Morton will race a BRE Datsun 240Z over the weekend, too.
